INTERESTS: I like cars, and I spend a lot of time driving my cars. Whether it is going to the dog park with my 3 dogs (Terrier, Spaniel, and Shih-Tzu), cruising down the coast or the mountain pass taking pictures of the scenery, or hunting down popular food places, I am always behind the wheel of a car. My most recent driving endeavor is Ubering on nights and weekends to make sure students are getting home safe at night. When I’m not outside driving, I enjoy playing car racing video games, editing photographs from my adventures, and trying to incorporate the latest tastes into my cooking.
