Q + A
Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in Southern California and still reside here in Oceanside. I grew up surfing and golfing. I am a private pilot with about 250 hours total time. I am married to my best friend Alison, and we have three kids (Reid 10, Archer 8, and Lola 6) as well as a dog named Ziggy and two cats, Lucy and Junie! In my spare time, I try to get in a little driving range time, basketball practice and games with Reid, and going to the beach with the fam as much as possible!
