I was born and raised right here in San Diego. I spent most of my youth living in Clairemont and Pacific Beach. I attended Madison High School (Class of 1980) in Clairemont where I met my soon-to-be-wife Kristen. We have two wonderful kids (Jasmine 16 and Nathan 12) and enjoy most of our hobbies with them. We love to take off to the mountains or desert every other month or so and RV camp, bike and hike. Both Kristen and I love to mountain bike and have been know to ride our bike to work. While this may not sound intriguing, the ride is mostly off road from Ramona to Kearny Mesa / Tierrasanta and back.
I have been an Allstate agent since 1990 which I took over from my father-in-law who started the business in 1968. Before Allstate I was the regional manager of a large pool supply company in AZ. I don’t miss the heat but we do miss the waterskiing.
My 16yr old daughter Jasmine just received her Drivers License so I can empathize with many of my clients who are going through the same sleepless night as I am (actually she is a very good driver…and well insured!). Nathan is the prototypical 12 year old boy. He loves to play videogames and tennis
Along with my hobbies / activities I find great reward in working with our church. A few times a year our whole family goes to Tijuana with an organization called Amor to build houses for families. It is quite rewarding and I am proud that my kids take part in this. It will pay big dividends as they get older and start to better understand how blessed we are to live in the U.S.
