A typical day in my life includes…

prior to COVID and my ALS diagnosis, I would head off to the office at 9 am and be at our new home build both AM and PM. Now I wake up to my young kids and wife and we play trains, swim, then I typically work from home with my company, BuyAZForeclosures and non-profit Paint For A Cure. As the day winds down we spend time together as a family, chat with friends, and by 9 pm we are EXHAUSTED from enjoying the day with our kids!

I was born…

in Malden, MA.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

it’s a fabulous real estate market for investing and the winter weather is spot on!

I’m listening to…

One Republic & Pink Floyd and the pitter-patter of my kids’ feet running around the house.

My family…

is my heartbeat and my source of motivation each and every day.

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

Elon Musk.

One thing I cannot live without…

my family.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a pink snowman according to my baby book.

I’m inspired by…

Steve Gleason the Congressional Gold Medal winner of 2020 for being an inspiration during my battle with ALS.

The one person who motivates me is…

Hyatt, my toddler.

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

I would fast track treatments that prove to be promising for debilitating diseases such as ALS. My hope is that people like me have the opportunity to live a healthier, longer life.

The perfect day would be…

having my family and friends around for a nice BBQ and working on a really cool painting in my garage
studio.

My first job was…

by the age of 14, I worked as a busboy at Village Inn. My dad lied about my age to get me the job.

My favorite escape…

sitting back and enjoying a nice game of poker with friends.

My life…

started in Colorado where I was a ski bum for 8 years. I then went on to own my own trucking company. After that, I found myself in Arizona where I was introduced to real estate. I’ve bought and sold over 10,000+ properties, have an amazing wife, and two beautiful children. I was recently diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and have a passion for helping others. I’ve recently started a foundation, Paint For A Cure. Paint For A Cure is an organization that will help support those impacted by ALS. The main goal is to provide medically accessible housing to those with ALS who cannot afford these necessities.

I’m currently working on…

my non-profit, Paint For A Cure, as well as navigating treatments for ALS that are in trial phases and advocating for them to be FDA approved.

Always…

challenge yourself to stay motivated in life no matter your circumstances.

Never…

be afraid of what can go wrong as there is an opportunity to grow in ALL situations.

Favorite Quote…

“Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited

about what could go right!”

-Tony Robbins

Biggest Dream…

is to inspire people.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people commit to doing things and don’t carry through and ultimately laziness
