Theo Chino

I was born in France, and my mother brought me to New York when I was 3 months old.

My mother, a bohemian artist, lived in Venice, Paris, Madrid, Dominican Republic, Mexico until I was about six years old. My parents had separated, they decided that the French Public School system was better than the New York Public School system. Therefore, I ended up living with my father.

I would spend every summer with my cousins and my grandmother in East New York.

At 17, I went to Mexico City to study International Relations at the Universidad Ibero Americana. I did not like the career, and I came back to the United States to pursue another field of study.

I decided to study Management Information Systems at the University of Alaska Anchorage. I lived there five years until I moved to San Francisco.

After four years in Silicon Valley, I returned to New York City in the summer of 2001.

From 2001 to 2004 I remained unemployed until I was hired by Time Warner Cable where I stayed an employee until I was laid off following the Spectrum merger.

I started a Bitcoin business, but I was unable to continue as the State of New York unconstitutionally regulated the field.

My adventure in Bitcoin made me realize that those entrusted with power were abusing it.

I am also a member of the French Socialist Party since 2004 where I ran numerous campaign for the French overseas.

In 2017, I discovered the County Committee and got elected to the 2nd Electoral District of the 71st Assembly District.

Living in a UHAB Third Party Transfer building, I witnessed first hand the lack of HPD oversight.

Along the way I got married with a psychiatrist that works at Mt Sinai.

I also worked tirelessly to create a real dual language program in New York City schools (EFNY.)
