What you don’t know about me

– I grew up in Santa Cruz and while life has taken me to a few states along the way, I knew I’d be back one day.  My wife and I currently live in Scotts Valley with our three kids.

What might surprise you about me

– I have one of the world’s best vintage snowboard collections. “Vintage” is relative since many of the snowboards I have are from the 70’s and 80’s, but they are some of the first to hit the market.

Favorite music genre

– Neil Young, James Taylor, and Old School Hip-hop (but not all at once).

Favorite book or author

– To Kill a Mockingbird.

Favorite hobby/interests

– Snowboarding in the winter and Mountain Biking in the summer.  Running sprinkled in just to keep me honest.

What would be your career if you didn’t choose this one?

– Author.

On your bucket list

– Writing a Novel, even if it only sells one copy (see above).

Favorite quote

“When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years”  ~  Mark Twain
