I was born…

to take over the world. (Aquarius) Friday the 13th, 1987, so obviously I am a very lucky person!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is diversity! It’s impossible to live here and not have varied tastes and influences.

I’m listening to…

JONYE .. Kanye West or John Mayer. Pretty big into Kings of Leon and Alesso right now too.

My family…

is really the reason why I am who I am.

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

Jay Z. Im sure it would be an interesting story to hear how he rose to the level or business he is at now.

One thing I cannot live without…

A COMPUTER.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a football player. Theres still to this day few things in the world that match the feelings team sports bring out. I still try to be as active as I can.

I’m inspired by…

PASSION. Whatever you do, be the best. Love it, live it, make money from it.

The one person who motivates me is…

Aj Colores.

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

the thought that we all have to be so politically correct and up tight. People have different views and opinions than you, why thats so foreign to people who knows.

The perfect day would be…

everyday is perfect in its own way really as long as you are learning something new. Life really is just a huge Christmas present.

My first job was…

selling memberships door to door, how cliche!

My favorite escape…

is currently the boxing gym. Its so tough you don’t really have the opportunity to be introverted, and requires anger and the force to get the endorphins flowing.

My life…

is a modern day movie, I would say Shakespeare meets Wall Street. I won’t end up like Charlie Sheen though.

I’m currently working on…

our latest creation www.fundingwagon.com — Financing creativity.

Always…

learning.

Never…

negativity.

Favorite Quote…

“Your life to this point is an accumulation of all the words you have said. Choose wisely.”-Unknown

Biggest Dream…

Owning a Phoenix based professional sports team.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Boring people.
