FAMILY & FUN
Although my California adventure official began when I arrived for college at the young age of 19, I honestly had no idea how much I would fall in love, life-style and the people. Besides enjoying playing music for a living here, I love the ocean, beaches, surfing, hiking trails, friends, and of course the perfect weather. In 2001 I married the girl of my dreams and now have two beautiful boys, so much to be thankful for!
Surfing is one of the most cherished treasures I’ve discovered while living here. Paddling out and catching a wave is a sacred and special part of my life which I also share with my surfing wife Beth (and hopefully, after more swimming lessons, my two sons Evan & Teddy). Surfing, “he’e nalu” the ancient Hawaiian sport of the Gods, is the ultimate way for me to relax, meditate and enjoy life. If and when I retire, a shack on the beach in Costa Rica (or anywhere near the ocean in CA), a decent guitar and a couple of old long boards would suit me just fine.
As you can imagine, almost every weekend I’m off to work at a different location. Whether I'm playing in Northern or Southern CA, I literally feel like I’m always in paradise, enjoying some of the most amazing places CA has to offer - especially if I’m close enough to a good break and my board gets wet (shhh…don’t let my wife find out)!
