What has been your favorite professional moment in the last year?
Starting up our mental performance serviceline and helping people realize the importance and enjoyment of training their minds through performance psychology.

Why choose Tahoe to make your home and career?
No better place to live! Mountains, beaches, recreation and my lovely wife brought me here (her hometown) in 2013 and I knew I wanted to live here instantly! Perfect place to raise our family and teach our children the importance of health, fun and environment.
