I love being from Santa Cruz. Both the natural beauty and the unique culture have played a big part in shaping who I am today. I consider it a privilege to have been born, raised, schooled, and married here. Though Santa Cruz has been my home, I have always been interested in life and culture in other places. Shortly after getting married and graduating college, my young family and I moved to China where we learned Mandarin and started an ice cream company. Starting with our homemade recipes, a small parlor space, and more confidence than we probably should have had, we grew the company to include a production factory, our own distribution and a great premium ice cream brand – primarily wholesaling to supermarkets, restaurants and hotels. We enjoyed learning how to do business in China and loved that as the business grew, it was a great source of jobs, training, development and income for our employees and the local community!
Though family and health reasons eventually brought us back to the sun & sand of Santa Cruz. However I bring the lessons I learned in project management, investing, sales, marketing, negotiation, and customer service to the real estate market in Santa Cruz County. I am happy to be a part of the Bailey Properties team and partner with them to serve this community and all who love it!
Also, I am first and foremost a husband and father to three beautiful young daughters. When I am not spending time with them, I enjoy reading good books, writing, surfing, playing table tennis and speaking Chinese whenever I get the chance!
