Council Member; City of Mountain View; 2 Year Short Term

This information is provided by the candidate

I was born in Olympia, Washington, in 1952 and went through public schools there, graduating from high school in 1970. I have one brother, and he and my mother still live in Olympia.

The reason I moved to the Bay Area was to attend Stanford, and I graduated in 1974. After working at SRI International in Menlo Park for three years, I moved to Berkeley to attend graduate school. I received a Master's in Management Science from the University of California in 1978.

After briefly working in two other jobs, I was hired by Hewlett-Packard in 1981. I moved to Mountain View and went to work as an industrial engineer in the Corporate Parts Center.

Since then I've held several positions at HP, mostly in marketing and training. I'm currently a Knowledge Management Consultant with HP Services and work at the Mayfield Avenue site in Mountain View.

My wife Twana is the Program Director of Leadership Mountain View, an education program for adults who live or work in Mountain View and want to be more involved in non-profit and civic betterment activities.
