noun

  1. a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

  2. a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

This is such an important aspect of my life. Born in Santa Monica at St. John's Hospital and now living in this beautiful city with my wife Christina, it's very important for us to play an active role in our community.  We are very involved with local community like theSanta Monica Boys and Girls Clubs and Rotary of Santa Monica. 

Here,  I want to share just a little bit of what we do. Always keeping it fun and making everyone's live's better. 

Take action. Give back. Be a community.
