As a resident of the Lake Tahoe Basin for the past 23 years, the last eight as a full-time resident, I have witnessed the ebbs and flows of our environmental and economic progress, and the effects these changes have had on our communities and the needs of our residents in adapting to them.  My background is varied and includes executive management, local and regional planning and a love for and desire to maintain the essential natural character of our Tahoe communities.  I have worked with both the private and public sectors and have an understanding of the importance of bringing all stakeholders together in partnership to get things accomplished.  It would be my honor to apply my various skillsets while serving on the NTCD Board of Supervisors

My wife Pamela and I are both retired and live in the Zephyr Cove community.  We have 4 adult children between us.  I serve on the Executive Committee of the Tahoe Prosperity Center, am a member of the Tahoe Douglas Rotary and have served as Secretary on the Hidden Woods Homeowners Association.  I am also a non-resident member of the Family Club of San Francisco.  Our hobbies include travel, skiing, boating, hiking, biking and, as a local musician, playing with my music group at various locations around Lake Tahoe.

In addition to the above, my past experience includes:

  • Strategic Consultant and Investor
  • CFO and various other executive management positions in 4 Silicon Valley-based companies (1 acquisition by public company; 3 companies IPO’d)
  • 12 years practicing CPA, Client Executive with Ernst & Young (formerly Ernst & Whinney)
