What do you love about your business? I love that every day is different. I love how I am always challenged to think outside the box on multiple things. Most importantly, I love meeting new people, as well as connecting with old ones and helping them with one of the biggest purchases of their life.
What do you get out of being a member of YPN? I really enjoy networking with like minded people and being around people who I can learn something from. There really is a very special group of members within the RTYPN organization.
What is your favorite special event in the region? That is a hard one…There are sooo many good ones which is what is so great about Reno, you can always find something to do that fits your interest. However, to name one… I do love Wolfpack football.
Your favorite time of day is ________, because…

If you weren’t at work right now, you’d be …
I would be hiking/walking with my dog, skiing, camping. My happy place is being outdoors.
If you could take anyone out for a cup of coffee, who would it be? Why?
Anyone…I couldn’t pick just one person… I enjoy talking with a variety of people and learning what drives them to succeed and the obstacles they have on the way. Every person has a story and I love hearing about it. Something new this year is that have been trying to focus on learning from those around me. I try to take something away from a conversation that I can put into my own life. Or even take away from my life… It is amazing how much you can learn just from those you come across on a day to day basis.
To you, networking is about …
Surrounding myself with like-minded people and people who challenge me to think differently about life. The type of people who I can learn something from, that is what is important to me about networking.

Today is going to be a GREAT DAY! He is here to remind us of the silly things in life. Life can be rough so take it with a grain of salt and have fun with it! We only get one shot let’s make it the best it can be even when everything is out of our control.
