I grew up in Lompoc, CA, and after graduating high school, I attended the University of Oregon. I graduated in 1982 with a BS in Journalism, and was the President of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
I moved to Portland and married my college sweetheart, Margaret Logan. We celebrated our 30th anniversary last summer by attending the Summer Olympics in London.
After working in various advertising-related fields, I returned to Lompoc in 1987 to raise my family and work for our family business, a group of Taco Bell franchises. I re-entered the advertising field in 2000. I was hired by CoastHills to be the SVP of Marketing in 2004, and have been here ever since.
We have 2 children, Michael and Danielle, both who graduated from Cal Berkeley. Danielle works for “Shift Communications”, a Public Relations Firm in San Francisco. Michael works for “Alter G”, a manufacturer of a specialized, anti-gravity treadmill used in rehab procedures. He was a five-time all American Runner at Cal, and still holds the school record in the mile at 3:56.
I love to run, golf, ride my road bike, and grow flowers. I have vacationed at Lake Tahoe for 35 summers in a row. I have completed seven marathons, including Boston twice.
