A typical day in my life includes…Workout, music, design, cooking, loving my family
I was born…in Kingsville, Texas, and have lived all over the U.S. My dad was a Marine Corps aviator, and we moved frequently.
My favorite thing about Arizona…Diversity. I love the multitude of land forms and the iconic geological features. Rain in the desert, sunsets, and the people.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…My dad. I miss him so much.
I’m inspired by…People that hunger for improvement inspire me. Finding the essence of a solution inspires me. Excellence inspires me. My family inspires me. I want to be a better man for them.
The one person who motivates me is…My wife. She completes me. I need her continual respect and love without that I’m a segment of myself.
Favorite quote…“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” –Calvin Coolidge
