I was born…

in Globe, Ariz.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

isthe diversity of the landscape. You can drive a few short hours and go from a warm desert to a cool pine forest.

I’m listening to…

a little bit of everything. I like top 40 songs, but I love early 80s music. My brother used to DJ at weddings in the 80s, and I still have all of his forty-fives from then.

My family…

aided in my success. My parents instilled in me the importance of an education, which eventually led to why I decided to take my skills and apply them to a business centered on higher education.

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

my mom’s dad. He died when I was young. He served in the military and was on a U.S. gunboat in between World Wars II and I. I would love to sit down with him and hear all the stories he couldn’t tell me when I was a kid, which of course, are the ones I really want to hear.

One thing I cannot live without…

is the ability to choose my own direction in life.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a toy maker or inventor. I came up with crazy ideas for toys and wanted to invent them so I could play with them.

I’m inspired by…

successful people—not just the ones who make a lot of money, but the kind, successful people who give back to their community.

The one person who motivates me is…

my brother, he’s an entrepreneur himself and a very hard worker.

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

all the turmoil in the Middle East.

The perfect day would be…

on the beach, and I have somehow misplaced my phone.

My first job was…

bussing tables at the Village Inn. I was 17, and it was the grossest job ever.

My favorite escape…

isthis really cool house I have stayed at a few times in Costa Rica. It is in the middle of the jungle and is so remote that the power usually goes out. At night you can hear the thousands of animals that surround you.

My life…

is unpredictable yet predictably fulfilling.

I’m currently working on…

moving into a new house really close to work! All I think about during the day is all the unpacking I still need to work on when I get home.

Always…

strive to fix problems not direct blame.

Never…

forget the people who helped you get to where you are.

Favorite Quote…

Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.” – Winston Churchill.

Biggest Dream…

is to improve the education system. Education is one of the most important things, and we cannot progress as a nation without continuing to improve. It enforces all the hard work of the people who fought to make our country what it is. It is my hope that my company, Higher Ed Growth, contributes to improving our system and helping students achieve higher education by helping them find the best school for their needs and lifestyle.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

is people who say there is no such thing as a dumb question.
