When my wife Sarah Jane and I moved from the Bay Area to Sierra Madre with our three young kids in 2004, we did not anticipate what deep roots we would put down here.  I can’t think of a better place to have raised our kids and been given the opportunity to have such a great group of friends in a community full of spirit, charm, and volunteerism.  I am excited to be on the Board of the SMCF so I can help Sierra Madre maintain these great qualities.
