A typical day in my life includes…  
I wake up before my family is awake and I get ready for work. I give everyone a kiss goodbye and head to the office. When I get to the office I boot up my CPU and get the pot of coffee brewing. Then it’s returning emails, phone calls, perhaps a site visit and collaborating with the other members of my team to find solutions for commercial real estate investors who are financing their projects.
I was born… 
on a bright spring day in Boston, Massachusetts.
My favorite thing about Arizona…
the quality of life and the many outdoor activities.
I’m listening to…
Spotify playlists and non-fiction audiobooks from audible.com.
My family… 
is my life.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…
any one of my deceased grandparents.
One thing I cannot live without… 
my family (with pizza and ice cream tied for a close second place).
When I was younger, I wanted to be… 
successful.
I’m inspired by… 
other people’s stories.
The one person who motivates me is… 
my children, because everything I do, I do for them.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… 
eradicate evil and suffering, bring unity.
The perfect day would be… 
time spent with my family doing outdoor activities.
My first job was… 
shredding my dad’s old legal files for allowance. My first W2 came from stocking shelves at Walgreens.
My favorite escape… 
reading and driving in my car listening to music.
My life… 
is blessed.
I’m currently working on… 
growing Tower Capital into an elite Structured Finance firm, continuing to support my community, learning and improving myself.
Always… 
improve, learn, and grow.
Never… 
say never.
Favorite Quote… 
“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.” – from the movie Taken (too dark?).
Biggest Dream…
grow old and watch my children grow and raise happy families.
My Pet Peeve(s)… 
when you go to froyo and the yogurt is runny.
