A typical day in my life includes…  

I’m an earlier riser, typically up at 5:00AM. Coffee comes first! If I’m in PHX I work on east coast email and issues while I’m more aligned with their morning. Breakfast with my son follows. I drop him off at school, then I head directly to the PHX studio if I have clients scheduled early, if not I’ll hit the Body Lab for an SPX work out before heading to the studio. If I’m in New York, I’ll do an SPX work out at SLT and then head to a breakfast meeting or directly to my New York facility.

I was born…

in New York City.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I visited the Valley for the first time in 1988 and fell in love at first site. The mountains and desert still stop me in my tracks. I love our weather. I’ll take too hot over too cold any day. Overall, the quality of life here beats most other places I’ve been.

I’m listening to…

so many things! My musical tastes are really all over the map. I have my progressive/hard rock roots like Yes and Led Zeppelin that will never go away but I’m also always listening to new things especially if it relates to artists we’re looking to represent at our music division.

My family…

needless to say my son and his mom are the center of my universe. There’s very few significant decisions that take place in my life that aren’t measured from the point of view of how they’ll affect them. Running a business in two states makes it hard to put family first but we still manage to get it done.

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

Greg Popovich, Mark Cuban.

One thing I cannot live without…

coffee, exercise and my MacBook.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an engineer, a real one though – not a recording engineer.

I’m inspired by…

my son.

The one person who motivates me is…

me.

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

a true third party in politics that wasn’t beholden to the extreme left or right.

The perfect day would be…

pretty much the same as most of my days now except from the beach on Coronado Island.

My first job was…

paper route.

My favorite escape…

exercise. The gym (or whatever studio I may be at) is the only place that’s all about me without interruptions or distractions.

My life…

is busy, especially with a three and a half YO but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m not a “slow it down” kind of guy.

I’m currently working on…

growing my company into a full service production and post-production company.

Always…

maintain your integrity and be fair to people even though you can be certain you will not always be treated the same way.

Never…

loose your point of view creatively. You may have to compromise, but you always have to have a vision to do great work.

Favorite Quote…

“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” – Jefferson

Biggest Dream…

as an older dad, I want to stay healthy and fit enough to enjoy my son when he becomes a man and continued success for my business and the people that work for me.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

I gave up on pet peeves. They just feed OCDs and that’s counterproductive in life.
