Who am I?

I am a Bay Area native who grew up in San Jose.  My family of 5 moved to Sunnyvale 13 years ago and have quickly become a part of the fabric of this wonderful city.

My wife Michelle and I have been happily married for 21 years. We have three children who have all attended public schools in the Santa Clara/Sunnyvale area.

We are animal lovers and have 2 dogs, 2 birds, a free roaming bunny, a guinea pig and fish as pets.

My wife and I love the Big Island of Hawaii and visit annually to hike, snorkel and refresh.
