A typical day in my life includes…

an early morning work out at my favorite gym followed by a busy day at ICE and dinner with my family.

I was born…

in Bisbee, Arizona; I’m a proud third generation Arizonan.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

wearing shorts in the winter.

I’m listening to…

Ed Sheeran’s newest music and some great podcasts (Freakonomics and S-Town).

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

my family.

One thing I cannot live without…

chips and salsa.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an orthodontist. I thought it would be cool to give people a great smile.

I’m inspired by…

my daughters Izzy & Carisa.

The one person who motivates me is…

myself!

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

helping people understand the economic benefit to everyone of peace.

The perfect day would be…

spent traveling with my family.

My first job was…

driving a forklift in a copper smelter.

My favorite escape…

I’ll travel anywhere, anytime…I especially enjoy getting off the beaten path!

My life…

is hectic but fun!

I’m currently working on…

getting ready for a 30 mile hike to Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon.

Always…

try to bring out the best in others.

Never…

say something you’ll regret.

Favorite Quote…

You’ll get more of what you want in life by helping other people get more of what they want.”

Biggest Dream…

I have a long travel bucket list – a yachting trip in the Seychelles Islands, hiking Machu Picchu and a European River Cruise are all on it.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who don’t meet their commitments.
