Whether it is my employment, my education or my personal interests: I am dedicated to sustainable living.  It is my hope to help our community evolve with more sustainable practices to improve the health and happiness of everyone.  I want to assist in ushering in sustainable standards which can benefit our environment, our health, our economy, and our virtuous beach community spirit.  I am a life long resident of Long Beach where I live with my wife.  We are both dedicated to our community and work hard to promote awareness of health, happiness and progress.

I am The Site Audit Leader for SunPower by EmPower-Solar Ces.  Empower is a solar company dedicated to clean energy.  My bachelor's degree is in Sustainable Business Management and my associate's degree is in Horticulture.

We need a participatory democracy.  We need a secure and sustainable future.  Candidates seeking the office of State Assembly for District 20 spent approximatly $291,822.00 each in finances last year.  While we will not spend this kind of money or accept it from corporate donors, we have the much more effective and realistic support of the people.  Corporations are not people and the money spent on campaigns does not lend itself to a democratic process.  Supporting a green campaign is a commitment to rebuilding our society's broken political systems.

The politics of our country have left no room for what is needed: imagination and creativity. Without imagination and creativity we will not be able to recognize social and economic possibilities in new ways.  It is not the case that a strong economy cannot exist if we build them on environmental friendly practices.  Let's lead the movement of an environmentally sustainable future that is abundant and healthy for all, including the long term right here on Long Island.

Short-sighted ecological destruction, erosion of our rights, and policies that perpetuate social and economic injustice cannot be tolerated.  Now is the time for change.
