About Me: I am someone who likes to try new things. I've spent most of the last few years exploring new hobbies and interests. Lately I've been working on progress in fitness, learning about new foods and cooking, and learning how to play the piano and ukulele. I enjoy spending time with my wife Karen and our son Michael. I am an avid sports fan and proudly flaunt my fandom of the San Francisco 49ers, San Francisco Giants, Sacramento Kings, San Jose Sharks, and Carolina Gamecocks!

Advice to Students: Life doesn't always provide a clear cut path to your goals. It's important to have goals and it's important to continue working towards them. But amending those goals doesn't mean you've failed. It means you've changed. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
