Experiencia

Biografía

I am the son of Iranian refugees who fled to America after the Islamic Revolution to escape religious persecution because of their Jewish faith. ​My family and I are eternally grateful for the safety and opportunity America provided us, which is why it pains me deeply to see how the American Dream is being made less and less attainable for millions of others. My parents taught me to work hard and never take what we had for granted.  With their support, I earned business and international affairs degrees from Princeton, Stanford, and Harvard.

 

As I mentioned, I’m not a career politician.  Instead, I’ve actually spent time in the real world and have a diverse set of public and private sector experience that I believe is desperately needed in Washington. I’ve worked in the Small Business Administration, the United States Embassy in Argentina, and at McKinsey & Company, where my focus was the healthcare industry. I have also advised local, state, federal, and international governments on various issues. In 2016, I launched my own business – a medical device company that focuses on urology.  As CEO, I built the company from one site to multiple centers across the US, quadrupling revenues in just the first year and driving consistent growth since. If only our elected officials treated the country that way. 

 

Outside of work, I am passionate about philanthropy and have volunteered with organizations to support Holocaust victims, low-income students seeking quality education, citizens on the brink of poverty, and other vulnerable populations. All of this has led me to the point where I am now a candidate for United States Senate, and I am all in on doing whatever is necessary to fix our country for the sake of my children’s future.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Like many of you, I am an angry parent, a fed-up taxpayer, and a frustrated business owner, who is sick and tired of the revolving door of career politicians in Washington and our rapidly deteriorating quality of life. My priority is addressing the challenges that working-class Americans face with common-sense solutions, prioritizing less government and more market-driven ideas.

 

We need bold new leadership who act as statesmen, not politicians. The American people are tired of the perennial politicians and bureaucrats that have destroyed this country. A prime example is that of our current Congress, where our elected officials purposely get nothing done for the sake of partisanship. Our Founders were able to create this amazing country with tactful compromise; they didn’t concede on their core values but were able to enact meaningful change. If we don’t fight for change, for real leadership in this country, our children may not have a future.
