What do you do for fun?

At this stage in life, I hang out with my kids and my wife somewhere near the water (Waterfront park, Coronado beach, La Jolla Shores). In the past, I played soccer my whole life.

What are you passionate about?

The bible. I love reading it and helping others understand it. And Harry Potter, I love those books. And lately, I've been loving gardening :)

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

I'm an Eagle scout. Growing up, I thought Boy Scouts was so lame and I hated it but my parents made me finish, so I completed everything by the age of 13. For my closest friends who knew I was in Boy Scouts (BSA), I used to refer to it in code as "British States of America".

Everyone should read...

Harry Potter, C.S. Lewis, Paul Tripp

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given was...

"Dream, try, and do good" - Mr. Feeny

My favorite word in the English language is...

Sphincter
