Being from Modesto, CA I had my bags pack at age 17, and was ready to head down south! I ended up at San Diego State University where I earned a degree in International Economics. Unfortunately, I graduate in 2008 at the height of the recession, so instead of heading to Wall Street, I took a left turn and ended up in Hollywood. I spent a couple years wondering about trying to make it as an actor until one faithful day when I had the opportunity to live out another dream back in San Diego. I purchased an action water sports company, OEX Dive & Kayak La Jolla that I now run with my buddies. The endless summer...
What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?
Early to rise and late to bed. I'd wake up at the crack of dawn and surf wherever the waves are good! After catching some waves I’d head to Taco Surf in Pacific Beach to grab a burrito. I always keep golf clubs in the back of the truck, so I would then drive over to Torrey Pines golf course, a US Open Championship course only 10 minutes away. Then time in San Diego only gets even better. Ideally, a limo would pick me and the OEX crew at my place and we'd head to Donavan’s downtown for a steak dinner. To top it all off, I'd have drinks at Bootlegger and a game of bowling at East Village Tavern. Back to bed by 2:00 am (hopefully)!
What is your favorite San Diego activity?
Surfing hands down! But if the waves are flat, I grab a kayak and some scuba gear to dive the kelp forest in La Jolla.
Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?
Good question. Six out of seven days I'd say burgers and beer. Of course on the seventh day I'd have to find a date to enjoy some good food and good wine.
