Born in Chile and raised on the East coast, I moved to San Diego, CA in 2008. Through my many diverse life experiences, I have gained tremendous respect and interest in working with a wide array of individuals on both a personal and professional level. I live in San Marcos, CA with my incredible family that includes my wife Lindsey , daughter Mia , english bulldog Winston and cat Mouse. An afternoon with family and friends enjoying good food with wine is a perfect day for me.
