Les attended both the United States Air Force Academy and Cal State Northridge. In his schools days, Les participated in a number of team sports, including playing football at the Division I College level. He continued that love of sports as a Coach at the youth, High School and Junior College levels. Included in that time is the rather unique accomplishment of having two offensive lines at two different High Schools, where every starter received a college scholarship. In the fall you can find him screaming at the TV (and occasionally in Colorado Springs) while bleeding Air Force Blue for his beloved Falcons. When he is not so engaged he retreats to the tranquility of fly fishing.
Les is a four time past President of the Chatsworth/Porter Ranch Chamber of Commerce.
He is currently the Chairman of the Board of the United Chambers of Commerce of the San Fernando Valley. An organization of 18 participating Chambers.
