A typical day in my life includes… doing the dishes after dinner. 

I was born… in Yakima, WA (The Palm Springs of Washington!)

My favorite thing about Arizona… is the people. Since moving from Washington State over a decade ago, I’ve met my wife and some incredible friends that I will keep for life. 

I’m listening to… the theme songs to Bluey and Paw Patrol

My family… loves the Seattle Seahawks. 

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… alone with my wife on a date night. 

One thing I cannot live without… black coffee. 

When I was younger, I wanted to be… in Arizona Foothills Magazine. 

I’m inspired by… happy people that are helping others and doing the work they love.

The one person who motivates me is… the Amazon delivery person. That stuff doesn’t buy itself! 

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… our country’s political divides.

The perfect day would be… filled with laughter and people I care about. 

My first job was… a groundskeeper for the Yakima Bears- a minor league baseball team in the Dodgers farm system. 

My favorite escape… Positano, Italy

My life… is full of amazing people. 

I’m currently working on… getting taller. 😊 

Always… be curious and ask people great questions. 

Never… stop learning.

Favorite Quote… “Success is easier when you’re enjoying life” -Miguel Angel Jimenez

Biggest Dream… is living long enough to have a relationship with my grandkids. 

My Pet Peeve(s)… the fact that sippy cups still leak.
