A typical day in my life includes…One of my favorite parts of my job is that every day is a little different. One day I may be helping residents, the next day I might be training an employee. I could be helping underwrite a multimillion dollar asset for an investor, and the next day I could be pitching a deal to the bank. The only typical items in my day are hitting the gym in the morning and playing music at night – be it with my band or on my own.
I was born…at night……possibly early morning depending on how you count it.
My favorite thing about Arizona…well I haven’t had to shovel one pile of sunshine since I moved here! I also love the diversity of the people in Arizona. So many eclectic backgrounds makes for a fun and sundry atmosphere.
I’m listening to…unfortunately it sound like the Muzak version of the soundtrack to Grease. That’s what you get being stuck in an office!
My Pandora station is literally set to play everything from Frankie Valli to Def Leppard to Shinedown. I also have a station dedicated to Enya. Oh YAY! Tom Jones just kicked on…….
My family…is AMAZING and truly the reason I am the person I am today. I am blessed to have the best support and upbringing a person could desire.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…well the company isn’t nearly as important as the food! I am a big boy who loves food, so the chef better be on his “A” game!! With that being said, I would love to share that meal with Jon Bon Jovi. One of my favorite musicians and AMAZING to his fans!
One thing I cannot live without…oxygen! OK. Oxygen and music. Music is my happy place. I use it to energize, calm or take away the blues.
When I was younger, I wanted to be…Darth Vader….true story!
I’m inspired by…making people happy and believe in themselves. Everything in life is good when you are happy with YOU!
The one person who motivates me is…my mother. I know, total cheese moment, but it is true. I have never met a more positive, selfless role model in my life. She is never afraid to discover what needs to be done and is always the first to help make it happen. I have never heard her blame another for her issues or complain when something goes wrong. I definitely hit the parental authority figure lotto with this one!
If I could change anything in the world, it would be…blame shifting. If people spent 1/100th of the time trying to fix things they complain about, imagine what could be accomplished.
The perfect day would be…any day that I can live, laugh, love and smile! Every day is the perfect day if you want be!
My first job was…well on or off the books. I was very entrepreneurial growing up. I liked money and would do anything I could to make it from shoveling snow to opening doors at the family’s restaurant. On the books I was a dishwasher and “courtesy clerk”, more commonly known as a food bagger, at Kroger.
My favorite escape…daily it’s the gym and playing music. However on a beach with warm sand, a stiff drink and a good conversation can take a year’s worth of stress away.
My life…is awesome. I have a great family, awesome house, love my job, play music in my spare time, and have a bunch of really great, slightly deranged, friends. Who could ask for anything more!
I’m currently working on…filing out this questionnaire! I am also working on forming a new band that will be performing in the Phoenix area starting in May.
Favorite Quote… “Do or do not, there is no try” – Yoda
Biggest Dream… playing a show for 100,000 screaming fans. I love to perform on stage and make people feel things with music!
My Pet Peeve(s)…ignorance and self-entitlement. As humans, it is our duty to grown and progress. People that refuse to learn just because they don’t want to but also expect everything to be done for them drives me insane. Also, no one is born owed anything. It is your job to know what you want and strive to achieve it!
