I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah but primarily grew up in the Southern California area. I have resided and practiced in the Conejo Valley since the early 1970’s. Over the years my wife Linda and I have been blessed with six wonderful children, all raised in our community. We currently have seven grandchildren and are still counting.

Outside of the office, the majority of my time is spent with family. However, I do have many interests but don’t seem to have the time to devote to them. I love to golf but am mediocre at best, I’m an infrequent hiker, a seldom fly fisherman, and love to travel just about any place. Gardening and caring for 30 fruit trees also keeps me busy.
