I have been a resident of the
City of Calabasas since way before Cityhood, over 24 years.
I have had the benefit of living in
this tranquil oasis where you can still hear the birds chirping and
it is a safe place to raise one's family. My children have had
the benefit of the exceptional educational system available to the
I have given of my time to the school
system all through their school years at the elementary, middle
school and high school level.
I have held offices of responsibility
in numerous philanthropic organizations including being a Founder,
Past President and Chairman of the Board of the Visually Handicapped
Adults of the Valley. I am a State Certified Ombudsman and
Advocate for the Elderly. I am a Past Co President of the
Parents Club at the University of Southern California and am a USC
Trojan Parent and a Member of the USC Scions. I have been
active in many charitable endeavors.
I was a Victim of the 1994
"Northridge Earthquake" and had my home in Calabasas
nearly destroyed. Through the good graces of the City of
Calabasas I was a recipient of their assistance in Earthquake
Retrofit and being referred to an Agency that assisted me in
rebuilding my home. After a 52 month absence we were able to
return to Calabasas full time this past July.
I believe in slow and careful growth,
community involvement, a more robust system of knowing your
neighbors and supporting them and your community. I have made
it a priority since returning to my home to dedicate myself to doing
whatever I can to make this an even better place to live and to be a
kind, sensitive and responsive City. I pledge to dedicate
myself to being a true asset to the City and the Community.
