Jeff has spent most of his first 47 years living along the California coast. He is curiously drawn to cities named for saints — San Francisco, Santa Cruz, San Diego, and most recently Santa Barbara. Born in San Francisco and raised in Sonoma County, Jeff has learned to appreciate surfing and diving the rugged Northern California coastline, homebrewed ales, and is passionately curious about the world around him. He and his wife Lila are frequently overheard planning their next adventures.
In his professional life, Jeff is a seasoned Marketing Producer and Creative Project Manager who has plied his trade for many well known brands, including Bio-Rad, Kensington Technologies, Citrix Systems, and most recently Sonos, Inc.
