As a resident of Cherry Creek East, one of the things I love most about this neighborhood is the tremendous sense of community and belonging my wife and I have felt ever since we moved here 3 years ago.  I'd like to work toward significantly increasing our membership and encouraging broader participation in order to expand what the association can achieve and to improve our representation of the community. I'm a computer engineer and entrepreneur, currently working on cloud software for Amazon.

I have lived in Cherry Creek East (CCE) since 1998 when I purchased my current home on Monroe Street. I have over 20 plus years as an HOA officer and Treasurer, and I’ve spent over 25 plus years in operations, finance and sales for technology companies. I have two Masters degrees, with the latest from Denver University where I focused my studies on Leadership and Technology Management. My hobbies include cycling, golf, hiking and watching baseball.
 
I very much enjoy living in Cherry Creek and all the local amenities it provides. Our neighborhood has provided me the opportunity to develop relationships and many friendships with the CCE neighbors. Due to my tenure in the neighborhood, I am very familiar with the growth, development and changes that have occurred over time. I strongly believe in having the community and residents actively involved in our growth, safety, cleanliness and beautification. If I’m elected to the Board, I’d like to focus on improving traffic and mobility through better access to biking lanes and public transportation. I am committed to many more years of a high quality of life our area affords each of us, and will do my best to work on issues that will have long-term positive effects on the neighborhood

Cherry Creek East has been my home since 2011.  I am a Vice President at a major bank and have been in financing for over 20 years.  I believe that the more residents that are engaged in the activities within their neighborhood, the better opportunity we have to preserve the shared vision of our community.   My focus is growth of the membership so that all neighbors' voices are heard and will be committed to preserving the quality of life our community affords each of us.

Board Member and Treasurer
 
I was in public accounting for 20 years both with an accounting firm and leading my own company. I serve as Treasurer of Cherry Creek East Association. 

My goal is to maintain Cherry Creek East as a vibrant residential neighborhood.  Commercial development must be well integrated.  Condo development rather than apartments is preferred. As an avid cyclist, more bike lanes and safer road sharing is a must.

I moved to Cherry Creek East in the fall of 2018 and immediately joined the association. Through my participation in Cellar Dwellers, Singles Club, and Women’s Wine Club, I have met many wonderful neighbors. I have also been a “Neighborhood Watch Lead’ for the past two years.
I have more than 25 years of experience successfully leading strategic and technical business initiatives with proven expertise in project management, program portfolio management, vendor management, profit and loss, and infrastructure management, covering full life-cycle application development and integration rollouts.  I also have extensive experience navigating complex and diverse business environments defining, managing, and executing business transformation and change programs.
 
I see Cherry Creek East as a hidden gem, and I am passionate about ensuring we keep it as such. There are many initiatives in our community, from safety, new zoning developments, solar projects, and group living amendments. I believe we need to stay on top of these initiatives to ensure the best-kept secret that CCE is, remains that way. Through my professional experience, I have gained the skills and qualities essential to assist the CCE Board on successful governance and operations, ensuring I can represent the CCE association to the best of my abilities.
 
On a personal note, I was born in Santiago, Chile, and moved to Denver, Colorado, in the early ‘80s. I have two beautiful puppies who you will see roaming the neighborhood, and many would say Oliver is a watchdog, all 8lbs of him! Lily is 13 years old and loves her walks. I am currently obtaining a business Ph.D. at the University of Denver. When not walking Lily and Oliver, studying, or working, you will find me playing tennis, instructing a workout class called Palango, and most recently enjoying my new Peloton!

When I moved to Denver and rented at The Seasons, I spent weekends that year on my bicycle exploring various neighborhoods.  I selected Cherry Creek East (CCE) to buy my home as an upscale, compact, well developed, walkable, connected neighborhood, adjacent to the Cherry Creek Bike Trail.  After I became active in the Cherry Creek East Association RNO (CCEA) a group of our neighbors created the Cherry Creek Area Plan then steered that plan through adoption by the Denver City Council. That excellent plan was adopted intact into Blueprint Denver 2040.  I support both plans as written.
 
I work mobility issues for the CCEA Board.  I look forward to joining Barry Lazarus when we bike the Garfield Neighborhood Bikeway in the next two years…after six years of work.  As a graduate of the Denver Regional Council of Government’s Citizens Academy and with formal zoning training (albeit in Minnesota), I also work with Bill Tanner in the Development Committee.
