Biography

DSC_6687.jpg

I’m a third-generation resident who grew up in our schools and devoted my life to Cupertino. The Valley of Heart’s Delight brought my family here in 1952. After graduating from UCLA, I returned to Silicon Valley because there’s no home like Cupertino. I’m running to make my story possible for future generations.

I have the unique skills and experience to confront our challenges. As an attorney, entrepreneur, and longtime community advocate, I’ve tackled planning decisions, school enrollment, and budgeting. I’ve fought for transparency, fiscal responsibility, and held city leaders accountable. I advanced safer bicycle-pedestrian infrastructure, and won financial support for renters, homeowners, and small businesses to protect residents during the pandemic.

ATTORNEY

I started my own practice as an entrepreneur and am currently practicing. I got into the law to fight for those who get left behind in our society.

COMMUNITY ADVOCATE

I've been an activist in our community for over 15 years, always speaking out against irresponsible or selfish governance, as well as injustice. I helped found Cupertino for All—a grassroots group focused on creating a more inclusive Cupertino and currently work for a non-profit to provide financial resources for those struggling due to COVID-19.
