I grew up in Illinois, but when I decided to move out west, my family followed me. I chose the desert, they chose the gray skies and rain. And I love it.

I make sure to visit this beautiful city whenever I get the chance. It’s full of intentional green spaces, beautiful seascapes, and amazingly talented innovators like Bill Gates, Howard Shultz and Jeff Bezos.

It’s hard not to be inspired when you’re here.

“I believe you have to be willing to be misunderstood if you’re going to innovate.”

– Jeff Bezos
