Who are you? Tell us about yourself.
First generation LGBTQIA American running for congress on the to defend and protect America First. To fight for the values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness worth risking everything to achieve as one Nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. From my parents I learned what's possible with vision and will power in their real estate endeavors. From being an only child I understand what it's like to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders inspired to carry a torch of a brighter future because there is no alternative. From being LGBTQ I learned to fight against all odds and cultural conformity for something bigger than myself that I didn't understand than but I do now; unconditional love and in that I found God. Unconditional Love is a love with our conditions expectations are attachments even and expectation to return and for that reason Free Will is the ultimate act of unconditional love. In that, suddenly I understood America and Republicanism; limited government the embodiment of sovereign free will individually and collectively. Why many Republicans fighting freeing the slaves is not a political talking point but the fabric of the party. From starting businesses to being a top corporate performer and contractor I understand the delicate balance pulling myself by the bootstraps and limitations in upward mobility by optical concerns and proactively overcome them in the future.
Please list below 3 key messages of your campaign. What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?
An All Americans first
First principal & deductive reasoning solutions
No matter what God one believes in we all come from the same one
What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?
Being Pro-America first does not mean anti-anyone else. All Americans first means black, white, hispanic, asian, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, atheist, wealthy, poor, homeless, blue, green, purple etc. Americans First. First does not mean only, it simply means we prioritize our resources until the last American homeless being is housed. "First principles reasoning" is a basic proposition that cannot be deduced from any other proposition or assumption. More colloquially known as "red pilled". It is addressing the underlying conditions by which a derivative problem results. Addressing the restoration of our election integrity confidence by enacting traceable measures biometric, blockchain or otherwise for the greater good of all beyond political polarization. Fighting for limited government in honor of humanities sovereign free will as above, so below, as within so without. Uprooting corruption with effective policy such as % based fines in excess of 100% I'll actions A great new deal Democratizing economies with creativity with innovative technologies such as Blockchain NFTs, potential 3D print licensing, artworks, renders etc. In our God given creativity. Like MLK, I believe we must judge someone by the content of their character. To recognize the seed of inception that powers the all in one another first. To honor that light of God in our neighbor, then their unique creative archetypal resonance second, wounds third and material identity last.
Who do you look up to? Whose example would you like to follow, and why?
The first entrepreneurship book I ever read was "Why we Want You To Be Rich" by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki. They inspired my trading and investment endeavors as the heartbeat of the modern world, or so it seemed at the time. I completely love the markets as an extension of myself and our social memory complex. Pete Buttigieg across the isle, his resume, brilliance and resilience as well as governmental role model in his presidential run. Marianne Williamson for her unapologetic truth against all odds and unequivocal prioritization of God and spirituality in government. Ronald Reagan for his vision contribution to the party and our overlapping backgrounds, vision and Screen Actors Guild parallels.
Is there a book, essay, film, or something else you would recommend to someone who wants to understand your political philosophy?
My own book Remembrance.
What characteristics or principles are most important for an elected official?
Faith, Authenticity, good faith, willpower, passion. Should those be presents we may actually provide solutions to the American people however so long as we have performative wokeness or political correctness no real solutions can be done because no real conversations can be had thus completely subverting government and democracy. Those qualities transcend party lines and should those be present we will always have solutions for the American people as with good faith the best Solutions will rise to the top regardless of party for the greater good of all should we have the passion and will power to get there.
What qualities do you possess that you believe would make you a successful officeholder?
Unwavering connection with God/Source consciousness Faith Discipline Strength Unafraid of non conformity remote viewing remote sensory timelines First principals and deductive reasoning Piercing performative woeness and double speak Passion Vigor Communication Empathy Vision Creativity Tenacity Commitment
What do you believe are the core responsibilities for someone elected to this office?
To fight for and to enact the will of their constituents regardless of their personal beliefs in a subject matter however when there's conflict or a better solution between the representative and their constituency it is up to them to convey such betterment in hopes of democratically having a collective agreement between the constituents and themselves however if one cannot be met then one must do the will of their constituents.
What legacy would you like to leave?
Helping humanity in the third density integrate and anchor into the next density dimension and octave into oneness.
What is the first historical event that happened in your lifetime that you remember? How old were you at the time?
When my mom was pregnant with me they had a car accident by which I remember my dad's voice saying "braise yourself we're going to crash, we're going to crash" and my mom saying "no, no, I'm going to lose him, I'm going to lose him" that's all I remember. I told my mom about this rumination when I was about 17 when it became increasingly persistent, to which in shock she confirmed to be true.
What was your very first job? How long did you have it?
It was a TV role, in which we are contracted by individual days, I was 17 years old! Considering the television SAG-AFTRA "Day Player" wording and contracts, I guess it was a job for one day!
What is your favorite book? Why?
Remembrance. It was written through me and its a constant reminder of inception of unconditional love, imagination, inspiration and creativity. It blows my mind all the time despite the fact it was written through me. A constant reminder of God, grace, love, compassion and patience as my temporal body is not always great at it.
If you could be any fictional character, who would you want to be?
Fiction is a funny word, how does one discern reality whom may not understand the inception of their own belief system. Everything in the outside world is a variable, we have new hair, cells and nails all the time. We are neither our thoughts, our emotions, impulses or bodies, if we loose a limb our essence does not change. That essence is the source of our imagination and creativity which gives us "Fiction" and as such transcends time space and motion in the material world. When we see a logo, or artwork we connect to the deepest essence of the creator and artist, to the degree by which we can hold their inspiration at any given time based on the level of perception at that time. With that said I suppose my favorite "Fictional" Character is NEO, despite the fact he is the every awakened man.
What was the last song that got stuck in your head?
What is something that has been a struggle in your life?
Discerning between unconditional love and unconditional tolerance the medium between compassion and infringements and someone else's sovereign free will and personal journey of Ascension integration or unconditional love. The line between free and divine will.
What qualities does the U.S. House of Representatives possess that makes it unique as an institution?
The ability to enact meaningful change.
Do you believe that it's beneficial for representatives to have previous experience in government or politics?
No. On the contrary I believe the status quo is the most existential threat to any meaningful change, solutions, productivity or innovation for its own self preservation.
What do you perceive to be the United States’ greatest challenges as a nation over the next decade?
Technological, innovation, adaptation and integration and its cultural implications and hesitations in our country. By this I mean more so monetary policy integration of things like the blockchain and the amazing opportunity it could provide America and the world. Nft for example could completely democratize and be a great equalizer of economic opportunity as rooted in creativity and Democratic licensing and it's potential. For example a teenager in a rural area with great creative design and vision sketching a shoe for example that Nike may be able to buy your license or a girl with a vision for architecture creating a 3D render of a home that could be printed for example I think some optimistic about which would provide cultural challenges. However more concerning I would find the technocratic endeavors that may lead us to a dangerous Time loop, quantum computing consciousness looping, recklessness from the current world delete going unchecked and having irreversible consequences at Large. Various forms of bioengineering, reckless quantum computing, self-fulfilling prophecies of the elite playing out there paranoias, dramas and traumas at Great scale, the dangers of censorship, loosing our pulse with Our Creator and falling to a deeper forgetfulness. Nefarious world leaders our top officials may be in bed with and implications they may not even begin to comprehend in their temporary acts of greed, politicking and selfishness.
If you are not a current representative, are there certain committees that you would want to be a part of?
Ethics, Financial Services, Science, Space, and Technology, Small Business, Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Budget, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth, Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress, Energy and Commerce
Do you believe that two years is the right term length for representatives?
I believe elected officials should be bound to the will of their constituents by which failure to do so resulting in recusal or or legal actions which transcends a specific time frame. This can level of accountability could implemented with existing technology already in use such as ID.me. biometric verification in various states for unemployment verification. Similar technologies could be used to poll district constituency, election integrity confidence and traceability of all legal votes, jurisdiction while insuring plenty of time for voter registration of all demographics and backgrounds.
Is there a particular representative, past or present, whom you want to model yourself after?
Those that have walked before us in the liberation of institutional mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bondage of the people in this third density paradigm. Those unafraid to flip the tables against elite establishments taking advantage of the poor or a bring down a stone that sits on the very top of a mountains mighty face that may think it's more important than the stones that form the base. Those willing to fight for their sincerely held beliefs in the face of all public adversity whom continue to challenge the establishment in the institution and democratic subversion. Many of these representatives completely crucified for following their constitutional obligation and will of their constituents for uncorrelated events to any acts of democratic subversion of lack thereof.
Both sitting representatives and candidates for office hear many personal stories from the residents of their district. Is there a story that you’ve heard that you found particularly touching, memorable, or impactful?
Too many to tell! will circle back as we get closer to the primaries!
