The only thing better than watching my clients thrive is being there for my team as we grow together. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and two dogs.

I love anything Sci-Fi (especially Ron Morre's Battlestar Galactica) and reading David Weber novels. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending family time with my wife and kids.

My favorite thing to do outside of work is watch The Office and explore new hiking trails around SoCal.
