Married to my beautiful wife for the past 19 yrs., father of two daughters, where we enjoy living in the country halfway between San Jose and Monterey. I'm living the dream of having the best damn job in the world. I thank God daily for being so blessed. For the past 12 years I have had the privilege of being a Battalion Chief, currently in the downtown battalion.
