When Not in the Office:
I enjoy checking out everything Los Angeles has to offer. Whether it’s the beach, mountains, or desert, I enjoy them all. I also enjoy going to shows, and concerts to see historic venues and theaters in the city. To stay active, I play squash golf, and I’m attempting to take up tennis.
