He has a passion for travel and has visited several regions around the world including Central America, the Caribbean, South Pacific Rim, and Europe. Xavier attended Santa Clara University, where he earned Bachelor Degrees in Philosophy and Business Management. He later completed his Master of Public Administration from USF.
Prior to his move to Sonoma County, Xavier lived in Sacramento for four years and served as the Assistant Director for the Sacramento campus.
