How long have you lived in Milpitas? 10 years
Did you attend MUSD schools? No
Do you have any children who currently attend or attended MUSD schools?
All 3 of my children currently attend Alexander Rose Elementary as a 5th, 2nd, and Kinder.
What motivated you to want to join the MUSD Board of Education?
I grew up in a public education environment. My father is a retired night custodian from a public elementary school and often setup and cleaned up Board meetings. I remember him telling me how important decisions were being made in those meetings. When it came to my children’s educational journey, I wanted to invest my time in building a learning community that provides successful pathways for their generation.
What do you feel is the most important part of being on the school board?
The collective goal is to enhance the educational opportunities for our learners. The path to a collective goal takes time through engagement with students, teachers, staff members, parents, administrators, and the community.
What are you most proud of during your term on the school board?
Seeing the development of the Randall World Languages School. However, there is still more to come as the work isn’t finished yet.
What is your favorite pastime?
Being a father and spending time with my children.
