A typical day in my life includes…

working on my projects from sunup to sundown. I don’t typically leave the house without taking the kids to school first though 🙂

I was born…

in Phoenix, Arizona at St Joseph

My favorite thing about Arizona…

being a native and spending my life as a part of a growing city provides a lot of opportunities.

I’m listening to…

such a variety of music. From Elvis, Elton John, The Beatles, to top 40, Alternative, Rock, and of course House music every day.

My family…

includes my wife and two children. Our parents, siblings, and cousins are all here too, and we all live close to each other.

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

that’s a good question.Tough to pick one, but maybe Elvis Presley.

One thing I cannot live without…

black v-neck tee shirts 🙂

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

I always wanted to be a business owner. I started my first one when I was 13.

I’m inspired by…

people who bring good vibes and that want to make a positive impact on others, our society, and then bringing those people together.

The one person who motivates me is…

my kids motivate me equally. It’s an absolute pleasure to spend my time working to make a difference in their futures.

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

if just one, I’d end child abuse but the list on what I’d like to change is ever-growing.

The perfect day would be…

no phone calls and spending time with people I love is about as perfect as I can imagine.

My first job was…

busboy at The Barn Steakhouse. I was 13 and was fired after the first night. Shortly after, I started my first business while I was still 13.

My favorite escape

I love to travel. The last several years I have gotten to do quite a bit, and it’s only increased my appetite for more.

My life…

has been a fantastic experience thus far. It is an absolute privilege to get to share the best days of people’s lives with them again and again and call it work.

I’m currently working on…

a drive in concert series. I’m also in the process of starting a new record label for our core brand Relentless Beats.

Always…

be good to people.

Never…

stop dancing.

Favorite Quote

I’ve always said, “I’m not going to wait to start living; I’m already dying.”

Biggest Dream…

to see the entire world is what I dream of most.

My Pet Peeve(s)….

negative people.
