I love meeting new people, pushing myself into uncharted waters, failing only to come back stronger, and helping others push past their own limits all while having as much fun as possible each day.


Sharing knowledge, soaking up all life has to offer, falling asleep smiling, and jumping out of bed in the morning to attack the day are a few of my favorite things.

Leo & Luna are my pups rescued from Monterey Bay Lab Rescue. Most of our days are spent in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.
