Where did you grow up? Till I was about 6, I grew up in Mira Mesa, CA, which at the time was a suburb of San Diego. Mom was tired of the traffic in the area, so she wanted to move. We then moved to Escondido, CA in '88. We've been living in the same house ever since.
When did you move to SB? 2000, after I enrolled at UCSB to study Mechanical Engineering.
What do you like best about SB? Everything I need is within walking distance. Groceries, casual shopping, entertainment, it's great. It works wonders on keeping my truck's gas bill low.
When did you start working at CIO? Late September 2006.
What is your position at CIO? Started off as Inventory Manager / Delivery Driver. Graduated from Delivery Driver to PC Technician and now I am currently Senior Technician & Quality Assurance / System Build Manager.
