What do you do at Ibis?

What would surprise people to learn about you?

Here are two things. #1 I am a 7th generation Californian, my son is the 8th. My moms people came to the Bay Area in the early 1820's. #2 I have spent 21 years of my life collecting tattoos to complete an entire body suit from around the world, of which I traded 90% of the work with artists by building them custom bicycles.

On my nightstand?

A photo of me and my son going into our first San Jose Sharks game. "Just us dudes". An old throw back Oakland Athletics alarm clock bearing the 1970's logo the Swinging A's.

Music I have on rotation?

The band IRON MAIDEN, all of the first 5 albums. Pink Floyd the Roger Waters years. These are my go to that I could listen on repeat for a life time. Desert island tape's as you will.

Comfort food?

This one is a little harder because my wife is such an awesome cook/baker and she makes anything mouth watering delicious. Her Baked Chicken Breast with Smoked applewood bacon and BBQ sauce would be it if I had to choose one. Another is her Paps receipts for BBQ pork ribs, rubbed first then slowly smoked, then a light covering of BBQ sauce. My mama's potato salad. And to drink with that a nice ice cold Arnold Palmer or Lime aid. To top off these delicious meals for desert my wife's world famous Double chocolate fudge brownies or a key lime pie. These would be what is served in the heavens for me. Now I'm hungry after contemplating that question.

Greatest fear?

My greatest fear would be losing my son and my wife.
