Age: 28

Title: Managing Partner of RMB Luxury Real Estate

Married/Single: Single…ironic since I am the Millionaire Date Doctor, but I guess I’m picky 😉

Kids: None

City you live in: Phoenix (got to love Arcadia when I can walk to the Henry & Steak 44).

A typical day in my life includes…

a lot of emails, lunches, phone calls, and meeting people.

I was born…

in June of 1989 in Paradise Valley.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the energy, the people, and the social scene is really vibrant in Phoenix and in Scottsdale. I love a lot of the philanthropic events in the Fall and the way so many residents are creative in business. Every day I just try to learn something new from those around me.

I’m listening to…

right now, the song I like a lot is “Bad At Love” by Halsey but I love all kinds of music. House, rock, rap, classical, oldies, it just depends on the mood and the setting.

My family…

I am really fortunate to have a great relationship with my family. My mom taught me about beauty and my father taught me about family and business. My brother who lives in San Francisco taught me the importance of education so all in all I’d say I’m a pretty lucky guy.

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

I love the 1950s and 1960s so if I could I would love to go back in time and have dinner with Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy to learn about their lives, style, husbands, and philanthropic pursuits.

One thing I cannot live without…

a Chinese chicken salad from my buddy Lenny’s restaurant – Delux Burger on 32nd Street & Camelback. I took one of my first dates there in 2005 and still frequent that spot once a week.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a basketball player…I loved the NBA until I played against future NBA star Jerryd Bayless and realized that dream would be short lived.

I’m inspired by…

my Dad. He’s an unbelievable guy in business and in life and one of the most generous souls I know.

The one person who motivates me is…

my grandmother on my dad’s side. She worked fulltime, raised three boys as a single mom, and still came home at night to be a great role model.

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

death and taxes.

The perfect day would be…

sitting on the beach enjoying a great book, a great pina colada, and a great conversation.

My first job was…

watering stucco on new homes in the 120-degree Arizona summer heat. I was really an expert at taking long lunch breaks and trying to stay in the air-conditioned sales trailer as long as possible.

My favorite escape…

whenever I have the chance I love going to back to the Amalfi Coast of Southern Italy. Capri and Positano are some of my top destinations for an escape because of the great food, the beautiful Mediterranean, and the Italian culture.

My life…

is very blessed. I try to be as grateful as possible for everyone and everything in it.

I’m currently working on…

launching my first book “How To Be Irresistible To Men: The Truth Behind Sex, Style, & Seduction” it is a step by step guide teaching women how to rise to the top of the dating game to attract and keep the man of their dreams.

Always…

show up prepared.

Never…

show up underdressed.

Favorite Quote…

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, then to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory or defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Biggest Dream…

to change the world for the better in some way.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

someone that’s a micromanager, I realized in business and in life you have to delegate once the expectation is communicated. Every success I have in life is really due to the great people I have around me.
