David Okimoto

Meet our in-house blogger

David Okimoto (or “Oki” as his friends call him) is a semi professional poker player living in the East Bay and currently works in many different capacities for the California Grand Casino. His interests are many, but his passions are sports, sports, and sports! Oki is a long suffering San Jose Sharks fan and season ticket holder, as well as a big fan and supporter of the Oakland A's, Golden State Warriors, San Francisco 49ers, and San Jose Earthquakes. A self proclaimed jack of all trades and master of none, he spends a great deal of his spare time with his athletic hobbies. On any given evening you are likely to find this sports junkie competing on one of his three softball teams, his soccer team, or his bowling team. His most recent athletic pursuit is now rock climbing, though he admits heights are not his forte. No stranger to injury, he proudly bears multiple scars, fake teeth, and healed bones, and is more than happy to share the related stories that come with them!

Oki loves feedback! Feel free to email him with any questions, comments, or even topics you'd like to see covered at CGC.Oki@gmail.com.
