Where did you grow up?
Everywhere between SLO and Alaska!
When did you move to Santa Barbara?
I live in San Luis Obispo, was born here and have lived here most of my life.
What you like best about the Santa Barbara area:
Everywhere along the central coast area is beautiful and safe. I believe we're all very fortunate to live here. There are many fun and healthy things to do and I take advantage of them as often as possible. Free concerts, mountain biking, driving (auto and motorcycle), wine tasting and dining. I'm going up the Big Sur coastline to watch the elephant seals soon!
When did you start working at CIO:
A little under a year ago - April 2015
What you like best about working at CIO:
Honestly, the best thing about CIO is the people, and the awesome pool of knowledge that the team possesses!
To live a long time in good health and to experience as much as I can
What would you do if you won the lottery:
Oh, that would be a toss-up between Sushi and Thai, or Thai and Sushi
I'm not really a movie buff. And the books I read are mostly technical.
You've heard the adage, "You're a product of your environment"? To that I add, "Then choose your environment well."

I have played piano since I was 4, have a home recording studio and several synthesizers, own several rental houses (which I manage myself), officiate football at both the local (high school) and college (replay booth) levels, and was a nationally-ranked pole vaulter in high school (30+ years and 40 pounds ago!).
