Life Away From Gilbert

Outside of the Gilbert office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 1-year old son; mostly chasing him around and keeping him out of trouble. Having been born in San Diego, to the detriment of my sanity, I love supporting the San Diego Padres, who will be enjoying a decade-long dynasty beginning… soon. My wife and I enjoy traveling to Europe. Having been to five countries in three trips, we have a lot more to accomplish!

Top three places you’ve visited?

Annecy, France
Manchester, England (specifically Old Trafford to see Manchester United)

If money was not an option, what’s one thing you would buy?

Travel and accommodations to wherever I want to go at any given time!

What is the one thing you would like to own? Why?

The Padres, because it would be fun.
