About Rob

I have always called Los Gatos home and plan to live here for years to come. I am deeply involved in the community, where I serve on local boards and commissions and volunteer with numerous community groups. I have long been organizing around the issues most important to me in our neighborhoods. Professionally, I am a non-profit project manager focusing on building tiny homes, promoting environmental conservation, and managing government relations. 
 
I am passionate about making our community the most beautiful place it can be. I am running for the Los Gatos Town Council to make our streets safer, create more affordable housing, support our local businesses, and protect our serene nature. If elected, I will listen to all residents of our town about what matters to them, regardless of whether or not I earn their vote this November.
