When I am not at West Hills I am usually doing something with my family. We do as many activities as we can with our two children, Kaya and Curren (See Photo Gallery for the lastest 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 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.
