Personal Life



I’m married to the smartest, most beautiful woman in the world. She has a Masters Degree in Nursing from the University of San Diego. When she’s not savings lives, she’s being a mom or doing yoga.




We had a baby just over a year ago. This photo is from Cityfest in Hillcrest. She has the healthiest diet of any child ever – 90% fresh fruit and vegetables from the farmer’s market. Much of it raw. The rest comes from places like Sprouts and Whole Foods. Even her mattress is organic, I’m sort of a hippie like that.



100% vegan. Why? Health. Environment. Respect for animals. ‘Plant based’ is a more accurate way to describe my diet, but to most people it’s the same thing as vegan. Why eat a living creature when I can get everything needed from plants. My body isn’t a graveyard of delicious animals.

The only downside of being vegan, we can’t shut up about it.


Competitive Runner


It’s a myth that vegans don’t get enough protein. I ate an apple for breakfast and ran a 1:30 half marathon in this pic. I run to work 2 or 3 days a week or go around Lake Miramar to stay in shape.
