I have been working as an IT professional for over 20 years. Before that I worked as a CPA in public accounting. I live in the suburbs of Los Angeles with my wife and two kids. We have two dogs named Taco and Bella.
How I Got Started
Before we had kids, we went on a few large trips to Europe and Australia. My wife and I love to travel. Since we had kids, we have mostly been exploring different states in the U.S. My jobs have sent me to places around the world and I like to book side trips to nearby destinations. I usually don't have a lot of time for the side trips so I do a lot of research and pack a lot into a short time period. I really enjoy seeing different cultures and meeting new people.
My favorite places to visit so far have been Egypt and Iceland. Visiting Egypt has been on my bucket list since I was a kid. There has always been something magical about the pyramids. Iceland was fantastic also because of the raw nature and beauty.
