Drake is a San Diego native coming from a military family that was stationed in America's Finest City since he was a kid. He graduated from SDSU, obtained his real estate license, and was eager to put his economics degree to use in this competitive industry.  By focusing more on relationships, he became heavily invested in his personal network and joined YPNSD, which has provided many priceless relationships with people all over the county.  In his spare time, he enjoys backpacking the beautiful terrain of California, playing pickleball with his friends, and line dancing at his favorite country bar.
