Kids: Three cats and two dogs.
City you live in: Gilbert
A typical day in my life includes… I usually wake up at 5:30 and feed my pets, then check emails, look at the stock market, the news, and I start my work day with a conference call from either China or Germany where we have business connections.
Next, I head over to my fabrication shop to work on the latest prototypes. Later in the day, I will go to the office to get an update on clients and orders, then have several meetings. I always skip lunch because I think it’s a waste of time. By mid-afternoon I’m returning emails, participating in conference calls, then heading back home.
When I’m home, I feed the pets dinner, work on blueprints for new prototypes, then I exercise, shower, watch a TV show, eat dinner and go to bed to do it all again the next day.
