I love the people – that’s the best part about working at AppFolio.
How long have you been in Santa Barbara?
I’ve been in Santa Barbara almost 20 years – I love it here! I grew up in Hawaii and was drawn to Santa Barbara to go to school at UCSB then was lucky enough to stay here after school.
What do you like to do on the weekend?
There is so much to do in Santa Barbara. I like to hike, snowboard and stand up paddleboard, I also love traveling…in fact, my wife and I are planning a trip to Machu Picchu to celebrate her birthday – I can’t wait! We also love getting away when we have the opportunity – we try to go to Tahoe and Mammoth as much as we can.
Tell me about your family?
I have a beautiful wife named Kelly, who is a real estate agent in Santa Barbara. We are fortunate to live on the Mesa in downtown Santa Barbara with our 13-year-old son, Evan, and our dog and cat.
