About Me

In 2018, I ran for Congress because felt there was a need to investigate corrupt Illinois officials.

Now that a lot of these people are indicted I see the problems in politics are greater than a few (indicted) people's desire for money.  We have a broken political system, where politicians are expected to make money, lie and under deliver.

 I believe the Torah is real and it makes clear we have a duty to set up un - bribed, un-perverted, functioning politicians.   


This time I am running to set a new standard. In how we campaign, in how we legislate, and how we manage an office. 

Professionally, I have been working in Energy Consultation with EnergyCX, Watt Pricer, and Energy Professionals of Illinois. 

Movies, music, books, history and football are some of my top interests (beyond energy)

Something that is sure to make political consultants cringe, I like doing stand up comedy.

Politically, I am a Republican in philosophy only and my favorite candidate in modern history is Ross Perot. 

Yet with a dysfunctional congress, we need to stop picking congress people like we do reality show contestants.


You may disagree with me on an issue or not like my style, but as F Booth Tarkinton wrote "Whatever does not pretend at all has style enough".  We need an actual representative. IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE!


Congressional Draft 4 10.28_edited.jpg

The 9th District

The only thing Lake Zurich and Evanston has in common is the 9th congressional district in purple.


This crazy gerrymandered district was created by a Governor who was elected on the promise of drawing "fair maps".

I call out the hypocrisy, but embrace the opportunity to represent so much space of a state I love. The fact that this state still stands after a century of corrupt politicians, speaks to the strength of our land, water, and people.
