What's the best part of raising a family in NorCal?

There is something for every interest - tech, outdoors, art, sports, and more. Want to ski and swim in the ocean on the same day? We can do that. Not to mention, the weather is fabulous, and people are friendly, smart, and (mostly) open-minded.

What's the biggest misconception about living in NorCal?

We appear to develop and latch onto ideas that are considered nutty (recycling, compost, and too many political ideas to mention...), but in our defense, those ideas tend to spread across the country. Don't fear new ideas or approaches.

What do your kids love most about living in NorCal?

They'd probably answer the San Francisco Giants, but from a broader perspective, they love the unlimited activities. The love the beach, year-round outdoor sports, quick trips to San Francisco, and of course, the Giants, 49ers, and Stanford football.
