San Jose Magazine named him one of Silicon Valley’s 100 most powerful leaders. Pulitzer Prize winning author and Washington Post reporter, Haynes Johnson, described him in his bestselling book, Sleepwalking Through History, as “bright, articulate; an American rarity, a proven political success in a time of political failure.”

He’s been a financial manager on Wall Street, served two terms as Mayor of Sunnyvale, co-founded a successful real estate investment and development firm and the Arts Council of Silicon Valley.

He and his wife, Carmen, spent a night in the White House with the Clintons, President Bill, Hillary and Chelsea, got to know Fidel Castro on a U.S. Conference of Mayor’s trip to Cuba in 1977, and chatted up Muhammad Ali after a chance encounter in an elevator.
