I am a small business owner trying to live a 4-hour workweek, intentional life! I left my corporate job several years ago and never looked back. I love to travel both here and afar and have visited or lived in over 60 countries. I never fully unpack my suitcase. When I'm not vagabonding, I love to surf, hip hop dance, fly airplanes, dive and sail. My dream is to eventually devote all of my time to my environmental and animal welfare causes around the world.
Even so, I love San Diego and have lived here all my life. You'll love my quaint little beach town too! The people here are very friendly and laid back, active and health conscious. It's the perfect place for my wife and I to practice a holistic lifestyle. You won't find more yoga studios, health food markets, and juice bars anywhere else.
I look forward to helping you get the most out of your stay. There is not much I haven't done in San Diego. Whether your thing is surfing, seeing the sights or attending a special event, I'll be happy to point you in the right direction. Mi casa su casa!
