  • What is your favorite way to relax?
  • Keeping busy and staying active is a great way for me to relax and clear my head. I love a good workout during the week, and on the weekends it’s all about taking advantage of California –  snow or water skiing depending on the season, hiking, and dirt or mountain bike riding. I can’t get enough.

Close
  • Outside of work, what are you passionate about?

  • What’s something people don’t know about you?
  • Most people don’t know that I’m an identical twin. It’s great when you need a day off!
Close
  • What is the last book you read?
