A typical day in my life includes

waking up early to go to the gym, working to continually improve Stream Logistics, then going home to play with my son, Axel, and relax with my wife, Whitney.

I was born…

in Scottsdale, AZ but was raised in Kingman, AZ.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is its diversity. You can enjoy great food and entertainment in the valley, and also enjoy outdoor activities at nearby lakes and the mountains up north.

I’m listening to…

audio books. As a proponent of self-improvement, I am continuously reading and listening to audiobooks to continue my personal education.

My family…

is extremely supportive. I am fortunate to have most of my family living in Arizona, which allows me to stay very close with all of them.

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

Elon Musk. He is the generational equivalent to innovation titans such as John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, and Steve Jobs.

One thing I cannot live without…

is my family. My wife gives me unconditional support and my son provides me with motivation to be a great role model.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a professional basketball player. At 5’9”, that dream faded quickly.

I’m inspired by…

the success of others. I love researching and witnessing greatness, whether it is an athlete, artist, or business mogul. The exceptional impact of a single person is intriguing and inspiring to me.

The one person who motivates me is…

myself. I believe the strongest form of motivation is internal. Nobody will have higher expectations for myself than me.

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

nothing. I believe that people, communities, and nations benefit from the process of experience and change.

The perfect day would be…

every day!

My first job was…

working for my dad who has owned a land surveying business for 25 years. He taught me the benefits and responsibility of owning a business.

My favorite escape…

is traveling with my wife. We love exploring this country and traveling to new locations.

My life…

is short, like every life. It’s critically important to me to have fun and make a measurable impact through my work and how we raise our children.

I’m currently working on…

developing a freight management system which Stream Logistics will use to manage its business. It will be the most efficiently designed system in the industry. The software is designed to be uniquely simple, which will lead to the most productive operations possible.

Always…

make great memories. Our lives are a collection of memories.

Never…

cease learning.

Favorite Quote…

“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” – Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Biggest Dream…

is becoming reality. I’ve always dreamed of creating a successful company, which provides unquestionable value to its clients and creates jobs in which people love performing. The impact of Stream Logistics will only grow as we continue to scale.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

is when people say, “That’s not fair”. It is a victim’s statement and I believe it is unhealthy and unproductive to accept a role as a victim.
