Born and raised in La Jolla, CA, my life has come full circle joining the prestigious Team at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the heart of La Jolla Village.
I was fortunate to grow up in the Muirlands area where I met numerous families who;s friendships I have maintained throughout my life. I attended La Jolla Country Day, La Jolla Elementary, Muirlands Junior High and graduated from La Jolla High in 1982. From there, I earned my B.S. in Urban & Regional Planning from The University of Southern California.
Growing up in La Jolla, I participated in many team Sports at the La Jolla Recreation Center, La Jolla YMCA and La Jolla High School including Baseball, Basketball, Football and Tennis where I learned the positives in life from competition and team play. Living so close to Wind n' Sea and Sea Lane, I certainly had one of the better "back yards" a child could ever grow up with.
My professional career has been very diversified ranging from the building of custom Homes in the Jack Nicklaus designed Bear Creek Golf & Country Club in Murrieta, CA to sales relating to oxygen therapy and sleep apnea in Southern California.
I have a wonderful wife, Marcela Mendez, who is a well known singer/entertainer here in San Diego. From day one, I assumed the responsibilities of being her "Stage Mom". I am in charge of all of her marketing and PR. You can catch Marcela singing at Herringbone La Jolla typically every month. Music has always been a passion of mine and I am so proud of how far she has come and the entertainer she is today.
Being able to call La Jolla home is something I will always be proud of.
