Military/Community Service I served 24 years active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1985-2009, retiring as a Master Gunnery Sergeant/E9. I served as an Avionics Chief, Recruiter, Instructor, Manpower Manager at Headquarters, Marine Corps and deployed all over the world in support of numerous combat operations. The greatest honor of my Marine Corps service was escorting home the remains of three Marines killed in Iraq on separate occasions to their families. I served 5 years as the volunteer Treasurer of Central Maryland Youth for Christ, and I currently serve as a deacon and young-adult small group leader at Grace Kona Community Church.

I am running for U.S. Senate to bring back government of, by and for the people. I am a retired U.S. Marine, former government employee at the USFDA, former government contractor, successful entrepreneur who founded the global training company, PM-ProLearn, and I'm currently the CEO. Having seen the workings of the U.S. Government from these different perspectives and creating a successful business from scratch, I have unique experience & leadership ability that will enable me to craft more effective legislation to represent the will of the people of Hawaii whom I will be honored to represent.
I want to represent the will of the people of Hawaii in the U.S. Senate, regardless of political party. This may sound cliche', but my vision is clear. To help enable government of, by, and for the people, and empower Hawaii voters, I will:

1. Create an online survey system/mobile app available and advertised to all registered Hawaii voters to provide me with their real-time opinions on issues I am working & voting on in the Senate, and

2. Hold a monthly virtual townhall during my entire time in office to update voters on issues and allow them to provide direct input to me during the event
I believe in moving our country towards renewable resources like solar, wind, and water power and away from fossil fuels as the responsible way to protect our environment for future generations. The challenge is to protect financial stability and growth for families and businesses during this transition. I will support legislation to address the infrastructure and innovation needs of our country such as a national electric car charging network, battery life research, and innovative solar, wind and water projects that minimize impact on natural ecosystems.
