Sorry, I forgot to reload the page, so I did not realize you already had the correct ID and at least we all came to the same solution :-)!

Need to see the palps under microscope to confirm imperialis because some of the males of genus are similar.bilineata is a possibility.

Thank you, Luis and Stephanie! He was very eye-catching as most of the jumping spiders in my garden are greyish or sandy colored.
