DEMONSTRATED LEADERSHIP, PROGRESSIVE VALUES
I am the CEO of OutreachCircle, a digital organizing platform for progressives. In that role, I have had the honor of helping to elect thousands of democratic candidates in all 50 states. I founded the company after running for office myself. Using a precursor to OutreachCircle, I was able to win my race despite being outspent 30:1 by out-of-town PACs. I founded the company to help others do the same, so our democracy could be more about people and ideas and less about money and special interests.
When I am not trying to fix our democracy, I focus on fixing our education system. I am currently on the boards of Orenda Education and Think Together. Other recent roles include serving on the boards of the Los Altos School District, Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula and Beyond12. In my spare time, I am a fitness fanatic and competed on American Ninja Warrior 6 (check out this video here).
When I was growing up, I struggled with learning disabilities. It was my public schools that got me to where I am today. If it weren’t for my teachers, I am not sure where I would be. I am dedicated to doing what I can to make sure those around me and future generations are afforded the same opportunities that I was.
Unfortunately, California is struggling to meet the needs of our children. 2MM of the 6MM K-12 students in California, an astounding 1 out of 3 students is failing our schools. If you’re born to a poor family or if you’re Latino or African American, your odds are even worse – you have a 70% likelihood of failing in school.
As an ADEM, I would have two priorities: (1) leverage my expertise working with democratic candidates to help more democrats get elected and (2) ensure that improving our education system remains a priority for the Democratic party.
I would be honored to earn your vote.
