A typical day in my life includes… Radio, gym, meetings, the occasional tv news hit, and any other spare time is usually filled with the various work I have with non-profits around the Valley.

I was born… In Cleveland, Ohio. Raised in Ft. Myers, Florida

My favorite thing about Arizona… One thing? The willingness of people to help each other.  

I’m listening to… Right now? Classic country.  (Waylon Jennings) But it changes often My taste in music is all over the place

My family… Is more than I deserve

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… My grandfather Frank. He taught me about manhood. I’d love to know if he thinks I turned out to be the man that he hoped I would. 

One thing I cannot live without… My brother. He the youngest but has always been my hero

When I was younger, I wanted to be… A cop, a football coach or a standup comedian.

I’m inspired by… Selfless people. There are so many people who live to serve others. I am humbled by them. 

The one person who motivates me is… My brother. 1st in our family to graduate from college. Great husband, father & cop. Everything I wish I was. 

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… How we view those with whom we disagree. 

The perfect day would be… spent with the people I love

My first job was… A busboy. I was just 12 years old. 

My favorite escape… music. There are songs that can instantly take me back in time.

My life… Is not what I envisioned & still unreal at times.

I’m currently working on… Being better. I always feel like I’m running out of time to make a difference.  

Always… Seek out people that inspire you

Never… say no to opportunity

Favorite Quote… “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this, all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Biggest Dream… To have a positive impact. (Or be a standup comedian.) 

My Pet Peeve(s)… selfishness, being late & slow people in the fast lane. MOVE OVER!
