As you consider contacting me to work with your family, it is natural that you might be interested in learning something about me.  

I am a Southern California native, having been born and raised in the San Fernando Valley.  I consider this a blessing because I came to value the beauty of the varied landscape, moderate climate, diverse culture, and abundant opportunities.  For better or worse, I also became accustomed to the high cost of living.  I love traveling, but have a sense that it will be difficult for me to find a place that feels as much like home as Southern California does.

I am married to a wonderfully bright and lovely woman, and, together, we are raising three sons.  Besides my family and work, I enjoy playing the piano, listening to music, reading, writing, running, board games, and working on projects around the house.
