I was born in Phoenix, AZ and raised in Scottsdale/Paradise Valley. Movies are a passion of mine, I like brussel sprouts, I have 30+ Jeopardy episodes on DVR at any one time, I wear sandals every day, I'm a sucker for those plaques on the side of historical buildings, and I have played basketball/baseball/ soccer/and golf my entire life. I love being a goof, pretending I know what I'm doing, traveling, history/geography, music, outdoor activities (baseball games, hiking, swimming). I went backpacking in Europe by myself for 2 months after I graduated college and it was the greatest experience of my life...8 countries in 60 days. I'm driven, caring, and I love my family very much. Anything else ya want to know? Ask!
