I am an Engineer – twice over & an MBA. The 1st half of my career was spent as an engineer & executive in the offshore energy industry. The 2nd half of my career was spent largely in the consulting business catering to all segments of the energy industry including electric power & utility cos.
My Family & I were in search of a superior quality of life when we came to Colorado in 2000... that is certainly what we experienced & have never looked back.

I’m running for House District 6 to Preserve the Colorado Way of Life with a reasonable and balanced approach that honors the will of the voters & delivers on a promise of Integrity and Commitment. I'm a Pro-Life, Safety & Security candidate that will focus on putting an end to riots, arson, vandalism, looting & assault and will expect district attorneys to do their duties to enforce the law and hold those who break the law accountable. I will look to immediately replace any district attorney that resists or fails to perform their job in this regard.
The country, our state of Colorado, as well as the City & County of Denver has been devastated by COVID... Not only have people lost their job, businesses & livelihoods, we have been subjected to a complete shutdown of the economy. All this while the leader of the US House of Representatives refuses to discuss meaningful secondary support (or CARE Act incremental aid) for those impacted; a Colorado Legislature that placed the state of Colorado at the front of the line by taxing federal CARE Act payments to those impacted; & a Governor that thinks he can do as he pleases in making the rules for everyone. We need leadership in our state and we're not getting it. We need to repeal & rebate Colorado tax revenues that were wrongly collected from CARE Act payments; we need to open businesses & schools; we need a second federal stimulus injection & we need to respect each other's safety & take personal responsibility for our lives.
I've been a consumer rights attorney for 15 years and have represented HD6 since February 2020. In my career I've taken on some of the nation's most powerful interests, including our largest banks and the NRA. I've also worked to ensure housing security during this unprecedented pandemic.
My number one priority is to advance our shared Democratic values down at the Capitol. I've dedicated my time at the Statehouse to the pursuit of racial, social, environmental and economic justice. I've fought for teachers and workers, stood up against harmful anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, and co-sponsored our State's historic repeal of the death penalty. I also introduced legislation to curb plastic pollution and have pushed for measures to get money out of our politics.
Most of all I believe we must fight for the American Dream--the idea that if you work hard and play by the rules you ought to be able to do better than your parents did. I've had the privilege of living this Dream and will continue to push so that its promise reaches every Coloradan, regardless of race or religion or place of birth. This means valuing facts and science, advocating for policies that ensure resources are allocated with an eye for equity and inclusion, and uplifting our marginalized communities.
COVID-19 has exposed the frailty of our economy, which prior to the pandemic was widely considered one of the very best in the nation. As we listen to health experts and start the process of re-opening, we will see some level of rebound. But this plainly will not be enough, especially until a vaccine is developed. We are facing $3.3 billion in budget cuts, which limits the ability of the General Assembly to support struggling families & businesses. We must reform TABOR by passing Initiative 271 which would cut taxes for 95% of Coloradans while bringing in $1.5 billion in new revenue. I support repealing Gallagher to avoid a devastating hit to our schools and special districts. I've also fought to keep the senior homestead exemption while closing other loopholes and have worked to secure federal CARES Act monies to support renters (including small businesses) and homeowners. We must also find ways to support small business owners through interest free loans, grants, and other programs.
