A typical day in my life includes…

everything after coffee; cycling 25-30 miles, writing, cooking dinner, meditating and loving on my girl and our three dogs.

I was born…

in Pittsburgh, where I attended the University of Pittsburgh, undergrad and law school.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

can’t really name just one thing. I love the mountains, the weather, the people, Grand Canyon, Sedona, sunsets and desert nights. Most especially, Arizona has a vibrancy that’s infectious, especially in Scottsdale.

I’m listening to…

Pandora Radio when working, usually the Boney James or Streetwize stations.

My family…

is unique and precious. Lots of aunts, uncles and cousins. All achievers and loving people.

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

Mother Teresa.

One thing I cannot live without…

love and hope.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a police officer, which I was for nearly five years – Pennsylvania State Trooper.

I’m inspired by…

strength, honor and kindness.

The one person who motivates me is…

do I have to name just one? People who understand that to change the world you have to start with yourself.

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

world peace! Okay, maybe that’s too complicated. How about Americans; all Americans relearn the concept of respect and civility toward one another.

The perfect day would be…

wait, I thought every day was perfect! Okay, 25-mile bike ride followed by a full body massage, then having dinner and a great wine with my girlfriend, Simone.

My first job was…

supermarket cashier/stock boy.

My favorite escape…

anywhere in the Caribbean.

My life…

is like a most-watched prime-time series: love, adventure, drama, suspense, surprises, cliff hangers and reruns!

I’m currently working on…

my second novel, entitled Assassin’s Notes.

Always…

be kind to others.

Never…

be hateful.

Favorite Quote…

“And now these three remain; faith, hope and love. And the Greatest of these is LOVE.”

Biggest Dream…

to own a bi-coffee shop (bikes & coffee & sandwiches) in Scottsdale with a second shop in the Hamptons.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

self-centered people.
