Born and raised on California's northern coast, I grew up amongst the Redwoods and the Beach. Shannon and I married in July of 2012. For our honeymoon we drove from our home town of Fort Bragg to Miami Florida where we boarded the Carnival Imagination for our first ever cruise. We enjoy outdoor adventures, hiking, camping, and traveling. We usually choose to do excursions on our own or book with a local tour guide rather than through the cruise line.
