conduits driving change
The San Diego Tech Hub leadership team is focused on defining the strategic direction across the various Pillars of Tech Excellence. Their goal is to build bridges, create connections, and drive the San Diego Tech Hub community towards change being champions to challenge the status quo.
San Diego Tech Hub is an extension of my passion to bring people together for the greater good. I want to see San Diego thrive and opportunities created for those that don't have a voice.

As part of the Community Pillar, I am passionate about bringing the community together to achieve greatness for the San Diego technology ecosystem.

"I want to help anyone interested in learning software engineering to gain the skills needed to transition into a career in technology."
“We have a real opportunity to foster a connection between technology experts in industry and those who are looking to learn.”
"For me, SDTH is about rallying our tech energy to improve the lives of people in our communities. San Diego should be known as the place where you can fulfill your potential regardless of your background, race or gender."
"With the SDTH, we can open doors to new ideas and opportunities, bridge connections, foster an inclusive and welcoming environment, and appreciate the diverse backgrounds of those around us."
“San Diego has a storied past of amazing tech companies. I want to help ensure we bring that back, so that my daughter and other children will want to build the future right here in San Diego.”
“What sets San Diego apart from its regional tech peers is a genuinely positive culture built around collaboration. There’s a true sense of community and a feeling that a win for one, is a win for all. That’s what SDTH is about, and that’s what I’m about. It's a perfect match.”
“Tech companies continue to see San Diego as a place to grow their organizations and also to attract and retain quality talent. I look forward to helping bridge the gap between companies, community and talent and finding fun innovative ways of attracting talent to the city we love!”
“We see an incredible amount of innovation and entrepreneurship in this region. From the many microbreweries in the area, to advanced manufacturing companies, to energy and defense industries, to new technology startups – it's an area with incredible economic variety.
Combined with quality schools in the region, there's potential for significant sustained growth, creating more opportunities for the people that live here. SDTH can be a catalyst to connect people and opportunities in unique ways that truly make a difference.”
“Since the first day I moved to San Diego, I knew I found the place I wanted to call Home. I have gotten a lot out of our community and from the people living here. I always want to give back more than I receive, and San Diego Tech Hub is the best place for giving back to the community wherever I can. I love connecting people, and seeing their success makes me very happy.
I believe that by combining forces, we can build a strong tech community in San Diego and make this paradise an even better place. All the people I have met through SDTH motivate me to achieve this goal.”
