Santa Cruz, CA
I am co-founder of the 180/180 project, a county-wide initiative to house 180 of the most vulnerable chronically homeless men and women by July, 2014.
I also teach a Sociology class on Homelessness and Society at UC Santa Cruz.
Point me to the problem. I walk fearlessly in to difficult situations and apply innovative solutions to seemingly impossible tasks. I am a consensus builder and a change agent. I am driven by one mission: to acheive equity and dignity for all.
When I leave the office, I hit the road. I am a 2x Ironman triathlon finisher, marathon runner, avid road cyclist, and ocean swimmer. Every night I go home to my solar-powered "off the grid" home in the Santa Cruz mountains with my wife and boxer dog, Sierra.
