Boca Roja Baja Wine Adventures

Tim is an adventurous spirit who constantly seeks out new challenges and experiences. Whether he is hiking with his Siberian Husky Loki, surfing, camping, or cooking, Tim will very intentionally find the best way/place/time to do it, and stretch his personal excellence in the process.  This appetite for new challenges drew him to Baja to surf big waves, where he fell in love with magic of the region, (and eventually Katie, too!).  Mexico became the place they ran to whenever there was time.  Meanwhile, back at home, Tim was suffering a near-death experience with boredom working as an investment analyst at a small company.  He and Katie dreamt of an opportunity to share their very favorite adventures with others, and Boca Roja was born!  He and Katie (the First Lady!)  just got married in Bali!
