Brent “Il Papà” Bernasconi is a born and raised San Diegan who doesn't know how to surf and barely knows how to boogie board.
Even though Brent flounders in the water, he does enjoy cycling, craft beer, running, traveling, amateur photography, social media, watching all 20+ James Bond with his wife, and playing trucks and trains with his son.
When he needs a break from the familial life, he spends his weekdays at the San Diego Tourism Authority (SDTA) office promoting "America's Finest City" to domestic and international markets. To do this, he manages multiple international agencies (because his Mandarin, Japanese and Spanish are a all little rusty) and executes SDTA's Social Media program of work.
Outside of his regular gig, he runs his own website/social media/email consulting firm, Skypotato Productions, which has worked with authors, restaurants, tour companies and even an astronaut.
