Age: 61

Title: Partner

Kids: Two sons: Russell, 30, and Scott, 27. 

City you live in: Scottsdale

A typical day in my life includes… business meetings and working out. 

I was born… in Tucson.

My favorite thing about Arizona… is being able to play golf year-round at excellent courses. 

I’m listening to… old rock music.

My family… is small but close-knit.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Ronald Reagan. As an actor, governor, and president, he’d have some great stories to tell. 

One thing I cannot live without… is laughter.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a specialist on the New York Stock Exchange, which is what I actually became.

I’m inspired by… my step-father, because he helped me learn how to handle many volatile personalities. Being around him helped me learn a lot of life lessons. 

The one person who motivates me is… myself. I’m a self-motivator.
