Experience • Determination • Results

My wife Katherine and I founded our restaurant business 19 years ago based on family traditions, and the values of integrity, stewardship, and community. We started with very little, but through the years we used our experience and determination to build and grow, getting positive results, even during the pandemic.

As the son and husband of immigrants, I want to be sure that everyone has the same opportunities Katherine and I did. And that isn’t happening now. We need leaders with real world problem solving skills who will act with urgency to build a better future for all of us.

When something isn’t working we shouldn’t say, “let’s keep doing the same thing and see if the problem goes away”. As your State Representative, I will ask, I will listen, and I will collaborate to change our systems to get better outcomes for you and all Oregonians.

We must act with urgency!

  • Prioritize community safety, increased shelter and housing, more treatment for mental health, addiction, and prevention.
  • Create economic opportunity for more Oregonians by investing in training and apprenticeship programs to fill current and future worker shortages in the skilled trades and healthcare.
  • Grants and loans for small business start-ups.
  • Affordable childcare and preschool for all Oregon children.
