MY BACKGROUND

MY BACKGROUND


CALIFORNIA LOVE

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and never strayed far from my California roots. I grew up in Los Altos, attended Chico State (and eventually pursued post-grad work at Stanford and UCLA), and returned to the Bay Area to start my career. I always knew I would start my own business. In fact, the writing was on the wall when I got called into the principal’s office in fourth grade for renting my comic books to my classmates. A few years later, I made a name for myself by running one of the largest firework operations in Los Altos.  

Ultimately technology called to me. There were two defining moments that shaped my future career in tech. The first was getting an Apple IIe computer.  As a kid growing up in Silicon Valley, this computer put me on the cusp of what was happening. Oddly enough, Steve Jobs’ house was part of my paper route. His family didn't tip very well. The second major happening was the commercialization of the Internet. This lead me to start developing marketing and technology solutions for a consulting company I started called Panic Publishing. In the early days of the Internet I had a number of high profile customers, including Netscape, Yahoo!, 3M, Bay Networks, SGI, and more.

DRONES, SPORTS, TRAVEL & EXPLORING

On any given weekend I can be found cheering on my daughters at their various basketball, swim, and soccer games. When not causing commotion on the sidelines, I enjoy spending time with my two yellow labs hiking the various trails on the Peninsula. When our family can get away, Tahoe is one of our favorite destinations for skiing and mountain biking. It is also one of my favorite places to fly my drone. It fascinates me that a drone with a 4K camera can provide such a different perspective on familiar landscapes.

I have been to Australia 24 times over the past five years. I have also traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Caribbean.

I am a rabid Bay Area sports fan. Giants, Warriors, Sharks and the 49ers are my teams. Southern California teams do not work for me.
