I am a lifelong resident of Manteca and Lathrop, having moved to Manteca when I was a freshman in high school from Lathrop.  Except for three years that I lived in Sacramento attending college I have lived in Manteca/Lathrop.  I have one son, Nate.  I enjoy spending time with friends and family and wine tasting with my partner Kathy.
