Life Now

When I am not at West Hills I am usually doing something with my family.  My wife, Cory and I do as many activities as we can with our two children, Kaya and Curren (See Photo Gallery for the latest pictures). We can often be spotted at the park, the beach, a museum, the Zoo, Sea World or at some campground around the San Diego County.

Outside of spending time with my family, I enjoy playing most sports but the two I have focused on most of my life have been soccer and surfing. I have played soccer since I was five years old. I played in high school and community college. After three knee surgeries I decided to end my competitive career. About the only soccer I play now is if some of my former students call me up for a pick-up game. I have been surfing since I was 15, yet it wasn't until I was 22 that it took the place of soccer as my main sport and lifestyle.  Since having kids I mostly spend time in the waves helping my kids surf or body board.  Trail running is my new sport.  Yes, running!  A few times a week I get out and run around Mission Trails or on the weekend I venture off on other trails around San Diego County.  It is a great way to explore and enjoy nature.

Whenever possible I try to enjoy the outdoors and travel. Most of my travels focus around learning something new and usually have some historical significance.
