I was raised in Moorpark, California by Elaine and Douglas Bernie. I am the oldest of three; one brother and one sister, and my parents showered us with lots of love.
Growing up, I was very shy. My mom always told me I was a perfect child. The way I see it is that I got the perfect amount of nipple from my mom and just the right amount of beatings from my dad!
In high school, the only "subjects" I enjoyed were friends, babes, and baseball — and, I might add, I was damn good at all three. My whole life, I have always been well liked by pretty much everybody because I am a loveable, happy, funny, positive guy who treats people with respect.
Throughout my life, I have had many beautiful experiences as well as many difficult ones, all of them being valuable. I have pursued the following fields of work: electrician, machinist, sales rep, personal trainer, and waiter. I have yet to find my niche. When I was 22, I needed to do some soul searching. I jammed out to Europe alone for three months, visiting ten different countries. I came back with some hair on my chest, and felt more solid as a person.
I firmly believe in enjoying life to the max. I am very fortunate and grateful for who I am. I am aware of what I have been given, I do not take anything for granted, and I am thrilled to have this opportunity.
