A typical day in my life includes

I spend most of my days servicing the clients I have in my wealth management business. In addition, I spend a significant amount of my time with my foundation and the organizations we assist.  The foundation work with military and first responders is how I give back and say thank you for the life I have been given.

I was born…

Tulsa, Oklahoma.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the scenery, the culture, and the ability to have every convenience of a big city with the ability to be in the wilderness running or biking beautiful trails in just minutes from my home.

I’m listening to…

news and market information during the days and 80s rock the rest of the time!

My family…

my source of purpose in life. 

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

Winston Churchill. I find him to be one of the most fascinating characters in history.

One thing I cannot live without…

exercise. It gives me balance in my life and enables me to enjoy everything Arizona has to offer.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a stockbroker. My dream came true!

I’m inspired by…

the incredible commitment of our military and first responders. They give every single day to their fellow man knowing full well they may have to lay down their life for someone else. They are simply amazing.

The one person who motivates me is…

my father. I lost him four years ago, but I think about the life lessons he taught me and I strive to live up to his example.

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

I would encourage people to say thank you to those who serve our communities and to recognize they are normal people who sacrifice every day.

The perfect day would be…

a great breakfast followed by a bike ride in the Arizona sun with friends, then fun with my wife and kids.

My first job was…

mowing yards in Oklahoma. My father bought me a mower and a weed eater and said “congrats…this is how you will make money until you can get your own job.” I hated every minute of it but later in life realized it was the best gift he ever gave me… learning the value of hard work.

My favorite escape…

running on the mountain trails of Arizona.

My life…

has been an amazing journey filled the normal ups and downs but blessed beyond anything I could have ever hoped for.

I’m currently working on…

building our foundation so we can continue to serve.

Always…

commit yourself to a cause greater than yourself.

Never…

forget where you came from and who helped you to be successful.

Favorite Quote

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

– Teddy Roosevelt

Biggest Dream…

to see my children grow up healthy, healthy, and filled with memories of a great childhood.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

negativity.
