I enjoy many outside activities, golf, yard, boating, etc. I grew up in the country outside Lodi & use to run a small vineyard & have an extensive construction & Real Estate background & have build several custom homes. I did numerous years of competitive swimming & water polo & loved riding dirt bikes when I was young.

My wife Debbie and I enjoy the shores from the ocean to Lake Tahoe and the cuisine in between.

We also enjoy spending time with our fast growing wonderful boys Cedar William and Luke Edward.

Community participation

I enjoy working with my boys teaching important skills and qualities in life and helping out with other kids who are involved in the same sports as my boys.

For 12 years from 2001-2013 I served as the Handicap Chairman on the board at a local Golf Men's Club.
