I was born…

in New York and moved to Arizona 8 years ago. I am and will always be a true New Yorker at heart.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The weather….at least 8 months of the year.

I’m listening to…

Classic Rock. Kids today don’t know what they’re missing

My family…

Is a very interesting mix of personalities. Sometimes I wonder how we get along so well.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Ronald Reagan. Not much was expected from him when he was elected but he went on to become one of our greatest Presidents

One thing I cannot live without…

My iPhone

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

A pro fighter.

I’m inspired by…

Successful people who remain grounded in spite of their success

The one person who motivates me is…

My wife. Her unwavering belief in my talents and abilities inspires me.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

Make love, not war.

The perfect day would be…

Spent with my family without anything else on my mind. My hyper active mind never stops and often makes it difficult to be in the moment.

My first job was…

Selling soda at little league games when I was 10. I setup a concession stand in the park and kicked the other kids out when they tried to do the same.

My favorite escape…

Going back to New York a couple of times a year helps me refresh. Nothing can ever replace friends you’ve known forever

My life…

is full of interesting and entertaining stories. Stop by sometime and you’ll see for yourself!

I’m currently working on…

Continuing to grow Scottsdale Jean Company as well as some other deals in unrelated industries

Always…

Surround yourself with the best people and absorb as much as you can

Never…

be ashamed to say ‘I don’t know’

Favorite Quote…

“You‘ve got two ears and one mouth so listen twice as much as you speak”.

Biggest Dream…

Other than winning the UFC title, watching my children grow to become happy and successful

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Irresponsible people. Your word is your bond so live by it.
