I was raised in the mountains of Southern California. I have attended San Diego State University (SDSU), University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), University of California Santa Cruz - Cuppertino, Mesa Community College.

I am a member of the UCLA Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

During the 1990's I worked and lived in Europe - mainly Paris, France.

Despite personal tragedies I was able to build a web design company to support both local and international businesses during the Web's explosive growth at the beginning of the millenium.

Fatherhood and the global economic roller coaster have presented many new challenges. I still work to develop the web daily for a wide list of clients.

I consider myself a Renaissance man and have a strong background in computers, science, finance, law and business.

My personal interests include mountaineering, motorcycle riding and surfing.
