I was born…

in Long Island, New York

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Spring Time – not too many things beat being able to roll down the windows and enjoy the beautiful weather during March and April while the rest of the country is buried in snow.

I’m listening to…

I stay current on the newest music, but nothing beats a healthy dose of Old School Hip Hop and Rock. Basically Bon Jovi mixed in with a some LL Cool J and Notorious BIG.

My family…

I’m very fortunate to have an amazing family that is full of fun, love, and support.  Sometimes I swear my friends like hanging out with them more than me?!

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

Robert De Niro – Who wouldn’t want to hang with the original Godfather and Jack Byrnes (Meet the Parents).

One thing I cannot live without…

There are 2 things I cannot live without (I know bending the rules a bit…..) The first is my morning coffee from Coffee Bean (it has to be from there, I would feel guilty going anywhere else); I simply cannot function without it and I crave the taste. The 2nd thing I cannot live without is music, I always have to have something playing.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a professional wrestler in the WWE. I decided to go a different route after being grounded too many times by my parents for beating-up my little brother and using their bed as a wrestling ring.

I’m inspired by…

the TV show “Mad Men”

The one person who motivates me is…

My family is the people that motivate me. We are dreamers – we all push and support one another to be the very best we can.

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

for everyone to be Happy

The perfect day would be…

waking up on the beach with my loved ones and doing nothing but relax.

My first job was…

A camp counselor at the Boys & Girls Club still to this day one of the best jobs I have ever had.

My favorite escape…

We live in a time where its seems as if anyone can get a hold of you at anytime…whether it’s by phone, text message, e-mail,  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, The White Pages =)  My favorite escape is  TRAVEL, even if it’s only for a day or 2 it helps me clear my mind and recharge my batteries. I love getting lost in big cities, learning about their culture and most importantly visiting as many restaurants as possible. Being that my background is advertising, when traveling I pay attention to how each city displays their messaging… always on the hunt to bring back fresh ideas.

My life…

Is a bowl of pasta

I’m currently working on…

building each of our clients brands and making them become household names, while expanding in to California.

Always…

DREAM and BELIEVE in yourself. If you work hard and put your mind to it you can achieve anything.

Never…

Let anyone tell you that you can’t.

Favorite Quote…

LIFE ISN’T ABOUT FINDING YOURSELF. LIFE IS ABOUT CREATING YOURSELF.

Biggest Dream…

To travel the world while hosting a TV Show.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

My biggest Pet Peeve has to be waiting in long lines or being stuck in traffic. I’ve learned to work on my Yoga Breathing  WOOOOOSAAAAAAHHHHHH !!
