QSP for Total Site Maintenance

What is your biggest aspiration?
It’s to be a business owner. I went to school at SJSU and got a degree in business with a concentration in entrepreneurship. Being in the Silicon Valley and seeing so many young people building their own businesses was pretty inspiring. My dream is to own my own taproom with a small venue where artists from all around can come to share their music. Music has always been my biggest passion, so I love connecting with other musicians.

What is your favorite type of food?
Honestly, I’ll eat anything. I am the least picky eater you’ll ever meet. But if I had to choose, I’d say my favorite food is a good burger. Lodi Beer does a pretty good one; their Twelve Napkin Burger is great, with a side of sweet potato fries to go with it.

What makes you unique?
If you ask anyone who knows me well they would tell you that it is my obsession with playing my guitar and making music. I can spend hours alone in my room playing or making new music. I have the master bedroom in my house turned into a small studio, and I could spend all day in there at times. Ever since I was 13 or 14 years old, my music and playing guitar has been a big part of who I am.

Tell us something funny about you.
I’m a huge sour candy fan. I can eat as much of it as you put in front of me. Probably terrible for my teeth but I can’t get enough.

What do you look for in a woman?
Cute, smart and relaxed are my top three qualities in a woman.

What makes a perfect first date?
Grabbing a couple of drinks and watching some live music would be a great first date.

What is your favorite thing to do in the Valley?
It’s to enjoy the wineries and many events that happen throughout the year. The beer festival at Lodi Lake is definitely one that you don’t want to miss in the spring.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Why?
Nope. You have to put in a lot of hours with someone before you get on that level.

Tell us your biggest accomplishment to date.
I’d have to say graduating from university. I put myself through school while working a bunch of hours. It wasn’t easy, but I am so glad that I stuck with it!
