Brent Bernasconi is a born and raised San Diegan who doesn’t know how to surf. He barely knows how to boogie board.


Even though Brent flounders in the water, he does enjoy running, cycling, craft beer, traveling, amateur photography, reading with his wife, and playing LEGOs with his son.


When he needs a break from the familial life, he spends his weekdays at the San Diego Tourism Authority (SDTA). Monday-Friday, he promotes “California’s Beach City” to domestic and international markets. To do this, he manages multiple international agencies 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. He has worked with authors, restaurants, tour companies and even an astronaut.
