He is married to Ruth Nettelhorst (a third grade teacher at Nancy Cory Elementary School). They have three children, all daughters: a five year old in kindergarten named Vanessa, a two-and-a-half year old named Nichole (who goes by the name "Toni"), and a two year old foster daughter who is in adoptive placement with them. An assortment of tropical fish and two cats allow them to share their house in Southern California.
