Rishi’s American dream - From graduate student to a run for U.S Congress.

As a hi-tech executive, I was transferred by IBM to Silicon Valley from Michigan and I absolutely loved it here. My wife, a networking industry professional, and I are raising our two boys and found our American dream in Saratoga. We also discovered deep joy in giving back, solving the problems of our community and helping to better people's lives. That is why I am running for Congress.
