Originally from Chico, I grew up with parents who were ski instructors in the winter and farmers in the summer. This lifestyle taught me two things- the value of hard work and the love of the outdoors. I spent my early life as a ski racer and baseball player. I went to Butte College and eventually ended up at Chico State. I now grow walnuts in Chico. I have been a baseball coach for our local Little League, travel baseball and American Legion. I am the General Manager of the Chico Suns 16U and 17U American Legion teams and sit on the board of NorCal Mavericks Athletic Development. My wife, Tina, and I have twins, Jake and Kate, and two chocolate labs. Jake plays high school and travel baseball. Kate is a dancer and ballerina. I love working out, fly fishing, skiing and travel. Due to my love of youth sports, I jumped at the chance to work for Vertical Raise. I provide Cadillac customer service and maximum returns with minimal effort to any organization.
