Title: Sales Director at RCG Valuation

Kids: two gorgeous girls! My oldest just turned nine and is a genius gymnast. My four-year-old is a charismatic blonde with a heart of gold.

City you live in: Phoenix – Desert Ridge

A typical day in my life includes…

my days are usually spent hanging out with cool business owners trying to reduce the amount they pay in taxes. My nights are spent hanging with the munchkins at places like Dave and Busters. After putting the kids to sleep, I’ll try and squeeze in a cool new TV Show like “See” or “The Mandalorian.”  If I’m lucky, a dub on Apex before heading to bed.

I was born…

with blonde hair, if you can believe that?!?! And grew up across the street from See’s Candies on Central and Camelback.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I want to say something profound like champagne sunsets and miraculous desert landscapes… but, if I’m being honest – the lack of snow and mosquitos.

I’m listening to…

Dermot Kennedy, Childish Gambino, Car Seat Headrest, Bon Iver, Kendrick Lamar, St. Vincent, Joyner Lucas, Alec Benjamin.

My family…

is spread out across the globe from England to Tennessee and of course, ARIZONA.

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

Lord George Gordon Byron.

One thing I cannot live without…

TV – wait, am I supposed to say my kids?!?! Oops!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

born into a wealthier family. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out. LOL.

I’m inspired by…

the everyday success stories of our clients. From immigrants who came to this country with nothing and now run multi-million dollar real estate portfolios to Marines who fought for our freedom overseas and returned to a spur on the economy with a successful small business. I don’t have to go far to be inspired in this line of work.

The one person who motivates me is…

the founder of RCG Valuation, Scott Roelofs. He is a hard-working maverick who put the industry on its heels.

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

the current lack of trust in journalism. I spent a lifetime in news and will always love and respect the first amendment.

The perfect day would be…

spent at home with the music blaring. I’d be in the kitchen cooking up dinner for the family with a glass of wine in my hand. It sounds so simple, but life gets hectic and we rarely get to pull off such a simple feat.

My first job was…

selling comic books for an antique dealer.

My favorite escape…

Papillon’s escape from the French penal colony of French Guiana. Wait, do you mean vacation? Vegas.

My life…

is darn near perfect.

I’m currently working on…

sticking to my plant-based diet.

Always…

relax.

Never…

relax for too long.

Favorite Quote…

“I have nothing to declare except my genius.” – Oscar Wilde

Biggest Dream…

win the PowerBall lottery and become an eSports Champ.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who use literally incorrectly, when they really mean figuratively. It literally drives me crazy! Also, people who don’t appreciate irony and sarcasm.
