I grew up Southern California and I went to college up in Silicon Valley. I love to travel and I've traveled around the world, but I guess even if you take the boy out of California, you can't take the California out of the boy...so I always find myself back here.
I would say that my favorite travel destination is Japan, but since I lived and worked there for many years after graduating from college...it's more like a second home ;). I met my wife there, and became the proud father of a wonderful little boy there. I would love to travel around Europe and in particular the Scandinavian region...maybe in a few years, when the little guy gets older.
I consider having a kid to be the most wonderful achievement in my life. My goal in life is to show him the places I've seen and experienced, and I want him to build on his own and to tell me his own stories.
