My company & title is… Pork on a Fork BBQ & Catering; Co-Founder

A typical day in my life includes… Smoking meats and preparing all the sides for service and I tend to do 2-3 catering deliveries to corporate luncheons.

My favorite thing about living/working in the Deer Valley area is… Our loyal customers; it’s a community of great people that love small businesses and are down to earth just like back home in Nebraska.

Your favorite movie you could never get tired of watching and why… There is something about Deadpool that when it is on, I will watch the whole thing again.

My family… Pork on a Fork is truly my family. My father moved out here to help us grow, my wife runs the catering department and we have whole families that work for us.

The business lesson I learned the hard way is… Implement systems from day one, they will save you many headaches and the pocketbook.

One thing I cannot live without… There is nothing better than a cold beverage, cigar, and a tee time.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… A professional golfer.

The song I would sing at Karaoke night is… Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett.

The one person who motivates me is… My wife, she keeps me moving the right direction.

The last thing that made me laugh out loud was… My Old English Bulldog, he has such his own personality.

The perfect day would be… Being out on the golf course enjoying the Arizona weather.

My first job was… A buss boy for my grandparent café back in Nebraska.

My life… Is Pork on a Fork. I don’t even think of it as a job anymore because it is my way of life and enjoy every minute of it.

I’m currently working on… Expanding catering through-out the valley and building our newest location at 20th St and Highland.

The best gift I’ve ever received was… A day after our wedding, my wife got me a tee time at Torrey Pines for my wedding gift.

The actor I would want to play me in a movie of my life is… Ryan Reynolds  

My dream vacation would be to… Greece; love Greek Mythology.

My words of wisdom to aspiring business owners… Learn from your mistakes and constantly use systems that work and not to reinvent the wheel.
