Perhaps Platycryptus californicus? If so then it would be the first CA data point for this species!
My thanks for a confirmation, or correct ID.

A common jumping spider in my yard - most often seen on the exterior walls of the house.

Thanks Kevin!
Moved from Platycryptus.

Seems like it would have to be. Barnes (1958) says that it is found "along the entire Pacific coast of North America, where it replaces M. undata."
