I am: 33

I’m a young professional at: Jenson USA (Keep Pedaling!)

I get involved in my community through the following organization(s): Pick Group and La Sierra University Church.

I’m proud of this achievement: Traveling to Iceland four times in four years.

I am a happy resident in the City of: Riverside.

My career goals are to: Be relevant. Help others.

My professional motto is: Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath. – Michael Caine

My advice to other YoPros is: Work hard, be focused and it’ll all work out.

When I’m not working or volunteering, you can find me: watching F·R·I·E·N·D·S, eating or drinking coffee somewhere downtown, going to my nephews soccer/basketball games, or seeing a comedy show or concert.

PICK is awesome because: there’s not really anything else like it in the area.

I maximize my PICK membership by: Being Chair of the Professional Develop Committee, where I get to work with an awesome team of people who are passionate about making sure Pick Power Breakfasts and seminars are the best! 

The issues in Riverside that I care about most are: The continued development of the Downtown area (Whole Foods, anyone?); Letting local college students know about what opportunities are available in their own backyard.
