Spent most of my career as a credit officer, investment banker, private banker and Chief Financial Officer.
Now and then for fun, you might find me performing at The Comedy Store, Flappers or Punchline.

As it relates to "the event" with the City of Indian Wells and a subsequent fine by the FPPC, let me be clear, all I ever meant to do was point out violations of law and abuses of power by the City Manager and members of the City Council. The fine was related to helping others get out the truth on some of the candidates running. The manner by which the information was disseminated had a technical error that was based on a bad interpretation of how to do it by the FPPC hotline and others knowledgeable in politics. I am personally proud that a people with highly questionable backgrounds were not elected. It is unfortunate that in a democratic society, more people do not stand up against blatant abuses of power.
