This is my 16th year as a teacher and counselor in high school level independent study. My first career was in the hospitality industry as a food and beverage manager with Hyatt Hotels and then as a manager for independent dinner houses in the Los Angeles and Long Beach areas. I live in Encinitas with my wife, Virginia, and son, Alex. I play golf regularly and I love to walk and "get things done" around the house. My interestst include old movies and new ones; good comedy; mystery novels and classic American literature; my two granddaughters, Kalista and Skylee. Los Angeles Dodgers baseball and Charger football.
