I grew up in Northern California, at the very top of the state on a farm and ranch in the country. My family is in the beef cattle business. I went to college at Saint Mary’s College (near Berkeley) and majored in business administration. I lived in the bay area for ten years, working as a senior financial analyst in the financial district of San Francisco. In January of 2008 I moved to Phoenix to attend Thunderbird School of Global Management and receive my MBA in International Business. I currently work in the field of commercial real estate. I know the Phoenix area quite well and am happy to answer any questions you might have.
I'm very down to earth and don't have any attitude. I try hard to impact the world around me in a positive way through my involvement in community service. “A man makes a living by what he gets, but he makes a life by what he gives.” I am actively involved in community service, including local non-profits. I am very outgoing and friendly. I enjoy working out, mountain biking, skating, skiing, hiking, road cycling, tennis and swimming. I'm definitely an active guy and enjoy venturing out and being social. I’m always happy to be a tour guide and help point guests in the right direction
