My company & title is…
Engineering for Kids – Phoenix Metro: Owner and Program Director.

A typical day in my life
includes… being a visionary for our company. Phone calls with customers, meetings with staff and students in our camps and planning for future growth.

My favorite thing about living/working in the Deer Valley area is… that we have a lot of open space. There are a lot of great places to hike and be outdoors.

My favorite movie I could never get tired of
watching and why…Happy Gilmore. It’s just funny from start to finish and a good sense of humor is good for a healthy life!

My family… is my life. I would do anything to provide for their comfort, growth and safety.

The business lesson I learned the hard way is… managing my marketing dollars and strategy. Many of the most effective ways to market your business are very low-cost opportunities.

One thing I cannot live without… is peanut butter. On crackers, in pretzels, ice cream, I could go on and on. It’s my weakness.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… in control of my own self. I knew I wanted to own a business and carve my own path in life.

The song I would sing at Karaoke night is… Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots.

The one person who motivates me is… my wife. Nobody works as tirelessly as her and she definitely motivates me to strive forward and do my best.

The last thing that made me laugh out loud was… a meme I saw on Facebook. It’s pretty amazing how a few words over a picture can make me lol.

The perfect day would be… sitting on the beach, playing with my kids and enjoying some Baja style fish tacos.

My first job was… a paper route when I was 9 years old. I did that job every day, seven days a week for four years.

My life… has been a blessing. I am achieving the goals and expectations I have set for myself.

I’m currently working on… growing our business and adding more locations. We want our programs to have a positive impact on kids, valley-wide.

The best gift I’ve ever received was… my children. I love them more than anything and they are the light of my life.

The actor I would want to play me in a movie of my life is… Tim Robbins. People say I look like him all the time.

My dream vacation would be to… Hawaii. It’s a magical place with tremendous energy.

My words of wisdom to aspiring business owners… just do it! Have confidence and believe in yourself. There is nothing greater than being in control of your own destiny. Find something you love, develop a plan and go to work. You will be amazed at what you will accomplish and achieve.
