Engineer and CEO
My experience is derived at the helm of several high-tech engineering companies the most recent of which we relocated to Reno last year. I have managed budgets similar in size to the SOA and produced a profit for 38 years straight. I have been fortunate to work with talented and committed individuals and through the years we’ve build something unique and valuable for the benefit of our customers, our employees, and stakeholders. I promote a corporate culture which values solution-oriented approaches and pragmatic ideals. We get stuff done. Conflict can be reframed as opportunity and the only real “win” is one where all parties benefit.
Owner, Winemaker, Vintner
As an aside to tech, I have also owned and operated a vineyard and winery serving as the primary vintner and winemaker for 24 years. It grew into a locally cherished landmark and “destination” property and was sold to a visionary group earlier this year.
I have been married to my wife Sandy for 38 years who has been a great partner and supporter in our many ventures. We have one son (now grown) who serves in the Air Force. We’ve truly enjoyed living in Somersett and have decided to make this community of friendly people and great neighbors our permanent home.
If elected, I'd like to focus on some goals for the SOA:
I would appreciate your support and look forward to the chance to serve the homeowners of Somersett. This is a great place to live. With some forward thinking and a new leadership team we can make it even better.
I am running with two other candidates – Bill O’Donnell and Jacob Williams. If we three are elected, we’ll be able to change the culture of the SOA into a Board that is more responsive to homeowners, and move promptly to implement the changes we propose!
Thank you for your support!
