HI, MY NAME IS… Andy Price and I lead the Grand Canyon Council as it delivers programs of Boy Scouts of America throughout much of the state of Arizona.

I’VE LIVED IN SCOTTSDALE FOR MORE THAN FOUR YEARS AND I LOVE IT BECAUSE… there is no greater place for hiking and golf! The combination of so much public land, great golf, great roads, and weather make Scottsdale paradise for anyone who enjoys being outside.

A TYPICAL DAY IN MY LIFE INCLUDES… working with a large team of community leaders, Scouting volunteers, and employees to support young people through Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Exploring programs of Grand Canyon Council.

MY FAMILY IS… very important to me, and I work hard every day to support them.

ONE THING I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT IS… time spent outdoors, whether I’m hiking, fly fishing, or golfing. I’m happiest outdoors.

MY TWO FAVORITE MOVIES I COULD NEVER GET TIRED OF WATCHING AND WHY ARE… “Fargo” and “Star Wars.” Very different, I know! But “Star Wars” was the universe of my childhood – who didn’t love Luke and Leia? And “Fargo” is quirky and so much fun!

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I WANTED TO BE… an attorney, but I figured out being a Boy Scout leader is WAY more fun! I get paid to work with superb people who care about kids, and I even get paid to spend time at camp.
THE SONG I WOULD SING AT KARAOKE NIGHT IS… “Bohemian Rhapsody.” “Wayne’s World” for the win!

THE LAST THING THAT MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD WAS… probably my wife cracking a joke at my expense.

THE PERFECT DAY… starts with a great cup of coffee and trip to the gym, followed by time outdoors with family and friends.

MY FAVORITE LOCAL NONPROFIT IS… the Boy Scouts! Seriously, so much of my world revolves around scouting. Second, I would add Trout Unlimited. The work TU does on behalf of clean waterways supports outdoor recreation, healthy environments, and a cleaner world.

MY LIFE IS… awfully busy, but in a good way. Every night I flop into bed ready for rest.

the time I got to spend with grandparents when I was a kid learning about what their lives were like during the Great Depression and serving in World War II.

MY DREAM VACATION WOULD BE… split between a week in Maui and a week at St. Andrews on the Old Course.

THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS… when you make a decision, consider the impact of that decision, but also consider the impact beyond that – the ‘second level impact.’
