What do you love most about Your City?

I technically live in Carlsbad, CA but consider San Diego my home... I tell people all the time it has everything you want in a big city and nothing you don't.  You get the big city vibe but still the safe community feel of Little Italy or Coronado Island.  The city cultivates entrepreneurs and combines a surf culture with hard work and ingenuity. Great city! Oh and its 78 degrees and sunny year-round.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

I don't typically don't eat breakfast, but my favorite weekend breakfast would be my go-to for Sunday football brunch.  I get on of the scrambles from Barley Mash and watch the first set of games with some friends.  Then it's typically back up to the house to prep for the week!

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Most days still sleeping. We work pretty late around here.

10:00 AM - Done with my workout, through my first cup of coffee and through at least a dozen emails.

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

The whole office pretty much works through lunch, we have a cool co-working mixed indoor/outdoor space, so no one feels the need to leave.  we usually post-mate in something as a group and eat somewhere around the office.

7:00 PM - We don't typically leave until 8 or 9pm on weekdays, so around 7pm everyone has ordered in some food again and we're all usually trying to wrap up the work day while eating some dinner.

11:00 PM - Usually back from my workout at about 9:30/10 so around 11 I'm settling in for some mental relaxation.  Usually catching up on world news, looking at my schedule for the next day and probably a glass of wine! There's always wine.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

I probably drink about 7-8 cups of coffee a day.  I try to steer clear of alcohol during the week but if I can't seem to slow down, a glass of wine will usually relax me enough to get some sleep

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

My most used app is definitely Uber.  I don't drive, anywhere... so uber for the win! 

Favorite IG account? WineFolly has some great industry content and Garyvee is always posting great stuff for "always on the go" entrepreneurs like myself!

What should everyone try at least once?

My favorite thing on my wine adventures is to tour the caves with the winemaker and get a thief taste from the barrel... definitely do that after a couple glasses when you're feeling good... fun experience!  Also, everyone should try Croatia at least once... with a big group of friends!  amazing!

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

Bali. It's my zen place.  Something about it there... I just disappear into the local scene and unplug... I'm actually heading there for 3 days en route to meetings in Australia soon! Can't wait.
