From grom to adulthood, Hugh has been happy to call the mystical realm of regal redwoods, bodacious beaches and slithering slugs of Surf City, "home." After graduating from Cabrillo College with high honors and an associate's degree in Journalism, he made the climb to the University of California at Santa Cruz, where he received a bachelor's degree in Sociology (with an intensive focus on Global Information and Social Enterprise Studies) and sashayed across the stage in his navy-cap-and-gown, magna cum laude. If you need to get a hold of him, or his beloved chiweenie Groot, check 26th Avenue Beach.
