I was born…

in California. 

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I have a daughter named Reagan… You tell me!

I’m listening to…

Coachella 2014 mix.

My family…

is my world.

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

Jesus.

One thing I cannot live without…

hope.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a basketball coach.

I’m inspired by…

my children.

The one person who motivates me is…

my dog Layla, endless optimism!

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

very tough question. Currently a pretty long list, but globally it would have to be anything associated with giving opportunities to children. Education, food and the hope of a better tomorrow.

The perfect day would be…

I’ve had many… Meeting my wife when she was a car hop at HoagieVille in Missoula Montana when I was 18 and she was 16.

Working side by side on the Wild Horse Pass project with my best friend since 8th grade and fellow Havre High School Blue Ponie back court, and current business partner, Darren Smith.

Making two birdies on 17 and 18 to beat Arnold Palmer by one stroke in 2005 at Tradition Golf Club for $20…35/37 to shoot even par at Augusta National…but first choice for “The best day ever” is ….everyday with my kids.

My first job was…

delivering door to door newspapers for The Great Falls Tribune in Havre, Montana.

My favorite escape…

hitting balls on the back of the range with headphones on.

My life…

is constant chaos, massive stress,  but moments of unbridled satisfaction and joy.

I’m currently working on…

redesigning and rebranding the old Firebird Raceway… now called The Wild Horse MotorSports Park. We are completely rebuilding and lengthening the Road Courses, rebuilding, upgrading and resurfacing the drag strip (done),reopening the Historic Compton Terrace and turning our 120 acre Firebird Lake into the world’s finest cable wake board park and Spring Break capital of the world!

Always…

inspire.

Never…

judge.

Favorite Quote…

“Our Intention Creates Our Reality” –Wayne Dyer

Biggest Dream…

my biggest dream is my current project. Rebuilding Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park into a World Class venue that attracts major entertainment events from concerts to racing to triathlons to watersports. Six-hundred acres, 25,000 seats, 124 acres of open space, no noise restrictions and no curfew. Literally the perfect combination and only 15 minutes to Sky Harbor and ASU!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

filling out questionnaires!
