John is no career politician.  He did not preface a political career with that of attorney, and he did not earn a degree from the Ivy League.  With some of the biggest and best research universities in his backyard, he didn’t need to.  In fact, not only did John earn his bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Texas, his entire education, from primary school on, took place in District 21.

Growing up in Bandera and Utopia, Texas he learned the value of hard work, integrity and respect from his family and the strong community that surrounded him.  On the family ranch, John helped to raise livestock, bale hay and mend fences. 

John now works as a software engineer at a local start-up in the burgeoning tech corridor of Austin.  He is eager to bring his tech savvy to our district where he believes that a free and open internet is essential for continued growth and innovation. John has unique experiences that mirror the diversity and strength of District 21, and he would be proud to serve the people he has grown up with.
