Favorite TRC Project: At this point, he would have to say the Alhambra, as it is his starting point with the Ratkovich Company. The project offers lots of challenges and he looks forward to the continued improvements being made to the entire project and being a part of those improvements.
Favorite City: San Diego. This city offers so many activities within a short distance from downtown. It has beautiful scenery and a relaxing environment.
Favorite Cause: I enjoy volunteering at different events. For example, Greening Day, or, cooking hot dogs for the Fire Department to raise money for burn victims. I also enjoy assisting with the beautification of Parks and Recreation areas. One continuous volunteer event that I have been involved in for the past twenty years is volunteering for the Annual Rose Parade.
