Where do you like to shop?

My wife, Megan, enjoys the stores on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica. They’re little shops with real personality. I’m lucky enough to get most of my clothes for free. But I do have my pants made by J. David’s in Stevenson Ranch. The owner is a great tailor. He made my wedding tux, and it actually made me look good.

Got a favorite beach?

I’ve loved Zuma Beach (above) ever since my days at Pepperdine University. We also like Ventura a lot. Whenever we go up the coast, it’s usually to Pebble Beach. We love it there—we got married right next to the eighteenth green.

How do you unwind?

I love to go into the back room and play my guitar (right). I’m not very good, but when nobody’s around and I can turn up the amp, I become Eddie Van Halen.

Do you have a favorite place to hear music?

We try to go to a few concerts a year. We just saw John Mayer with Ben Folds at the Hollywood Bowl, which, by the way, has sushi and wine. Does it get any more L.A. than that?I guess I really love L.A., on my own terms.
