A typical day in my life includes… 

A visit to the gym, a full day with my employees & customers, followed by family time at home.  As a business owner, my “work day” never really ends.

I was born… 

in Hicksville, OH.  It’s a very small town in NW Ohio.

My favorite thing about Arizona… 

is undoubtedly the weather.  After spending my childhood and college years in OH, there is nothing better than communicating our temperatures while speaking to family and friends that have just finished shoveling the snow from their sidewalks.

I’m listening to… 

pretty much anything that is on the radio, however country music is my favorite.  Growing up in small town as I did, you can really relate to the songs.

My family… 

means everything to me.  I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for 8 years, but we began dating when 16.  Our daughter Zoey is at a great age where she is involved in a number of activities and cannot wait to meet her little sister.

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

Rob Dyrdek.  I know that is a bit odd and I am not even into skating.  The fact that he took his passion of skating and used his marketing genius to build a “brand” and grow it into the monster it is today is pretty impressive to me.

One thing I cannot live without…

besides my family, it would have to be my iphone.  Being a business owner, it is pretty much my lifeline.  The technology is so advanced that I could potentially run business without any other technology, computers included.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

  an NFL player.  What little boy doesn’t want to be at some point.

I’m inspired by… 

other people’s drive.  I have met a number of people, regardless of their income bracket or job, that show up on-time every day, go above and beyond their call of duty, with very little complaints, while always were a smile.  The types of people that do not exhibit an ounce of self-pitty.

The one person who motivates me is…

myself.  I am highly self-motivated and always hold myself to a higher standard.

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

I’ve got nothing here.  There are a number of cliché answers, but that’s not my style.

The perfect day would be…

a vacation on the beach with my family.

My first job was…

as an Auditor for Sherwin Williams.

My favorite escape… 

is the golf course.  I do not play as much as I would like to. However, it is the one place that I can relax and let my guard down for a couple of hours at a time.

My life…

has been very blessed thus far.  I have a beautiful and loving family with miles of support from family and friends.

I’m currently working on…

growing my business and giving back to others.

Always… 

treat other’s with respect.  You never know what someone else is going through.

Never… 

Quit.  Always see it through, if things get tough, redefine your objectives and finish line, complete the task, then reflect.  It’s only a failure if you do not learn from it in some way.

Favorite Quote… 

“Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.”

Biggest Dream… 

Is for my children to grow up and become wildly successful in whatever they choose and be honorable, productive members of society.

My Pet Peeve… 

Ignorant people.  I’m a very easy individual to get along with, but I can’t deal with ignorance.
