Biography

 I’ve been involved with the community since I first arrived.  One reason I love this town is that everyone seems to participate.  Early on, I became a volunteer with Coronado Lions Club, which holds fundraising events throughout the year.  My favorite event is our hot dog stand on the 4th of July, which is a 12-hour shift selling hundreds of hot dogs to raise money for people with impaired vision and inner city kids who cannot afford the glasses they need.  We give out free hot dogs and Starbucks coffee to military veterans and peace officers – this year I walked around the park taking orders from every veteran I could find, and delivered them so they could enjoy the concert.  I meet people from active SEAL team members to WWII vets who tell amazing stories. 

 

In April of each year I volunteer for the Coronado Flower Show at Spreckels Park, selling donated plants and gifts.  I’ve been a team captain for the Old Goats Who Care event held each year at the Loews Resort.  It is a wheelchair basketball game between community volunteers and the Wolfpack team which is amputee veterans (we have never won a game!).  This year’s game benefitted the Charles Keating IV Foundation, in memory of a local military hero whose life was cut short.

 

Last year I co-managed the Middle School venue for Coronado Island Film Festival, and this year I will be managing the High School’s venue.  I also help organize the Movie And Play event at Coronado Playhouse each year.  This event includes a silent auction, with all proceeds going to non-profit organizations.

 

Throughout the past year I paid for all shipping costs for relief efforts in a variety of disasters across the country.  Local residents bring in items from clothes to food to generators, and it pleases me to pay for the shipping and taxes out of my own pocket to assist victims of floods in Houston, the hurricane in Puerto Rico and fires in California.
