Time for a Change

I am a cancer scientist, pharmacologist and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) researcher.  Working with children suffering from brain cancer, I found a purpose in translational medicine where, in studying these children’s cancers he identified unique cells called cancer stem cells.  This discovery stimulated new thinking about cancer and helped revolutionize the field and sped up the development of improved therapies.

Through my experience, I know very well the remarkable achievements the U.S. can make when we take our problems head on. In Congress, I will sponsor legislation that creates a federal medical cannabis program.  I will be a leading voice in Congress for policies that are effective in improving healthcare, preventing overmedication, solving our opioid epidemic and putting our healthcare system on track to sustainability.  I’ll champion evidence-based policies, establish a coherent national security policy and commit the U.S. to a sustainable future which combats the unfolding global calamity of climate change.  I’ll steward policies that support an innovation economy which creates high paying jobs and a robust manufacturing base while keeping the U.S. competitive in the world.

I grew up just outside the gates of the former U.S. Army Signal Corps headquarters at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey where my dad was a military satellite communications pioneer.  My mom is a public school reading teacher and children’s author.  My older brother, sister-in-law, two nephews and mom now live in rural Georgia.  I received my PhD in Molecular & Medical Pharmacology from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and completed postdoctoral training in Biomedical Engineering in the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.  I am currently co-founder of a Los Angeles based start-up pharmaceutical company focused on hard-to-treat conditions and diseases.

Good policies are based on effectiveness and outcome, not ideology.

We prevent cancer with cancer screenings, the flu with flu shots, & massive efforts to prevent terrorism. But #GunViolence? Nope. In Congress I will fight to lift the Dickey Amendment which forbids the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention from preventing gun violence.
