Hello, when writing a bio on the internet, you can ponder the thought of how much content you want to write before the individual reading becomes bored or just plain disinterested. If you made it to the end of that sentence, I will provide a bit more. I am 43, happily married (Yes, both of us!) and have a son 10, and a daughter 12. I was born in Virginia, moved as a young child to Tempe, Arizona in the early 70's, then to Austin, Texas. for my teens. My 20's and early 30's were spent in Redondo Beach, California and work brought me back full circle to beautiful sunny Arizona. Work, yes, live it and love it, but starting something new is the reasoning for networking. Always interested in meeting new faces. My early prior history of notable positions include sous chef at Ruth's Chris Steak House and breakfast at West End cafe in Austin Texas. Great food, great times. My parents offered me to move out with them to Redondo and go to college, and who could say no to that. Eventually I branched out and did grip/gaffer/props, plus drving the equipment around to locations for a multitude of non-union films and tv shows. That led to an operations manager position with ltl trucking at Forward Air for the next 17 years, which offered steady income, benefits, and yes, bonuses. I kept a 98% audit compliance rate at the LAX /SAN terminals, the best in the entire country. That percentage is not handed out and does not come easy. The road finally led to me starting out an organization and cleaning business, Pink Broom Cleaning llc. The choice was obvious as those skills have always been an essential part of my life, personal and professional. Yes, in life there are many highlights, lowlights, and everything else inbetween, but I have always remained loyal, hardworking, honest and kept a positive mental attitude. Hobbies, not much time for those these days as a family man, but they include: Hiking, gardening, photography, reading, writing, surfing (rare), waterskiing, road trips and all of the other adventurous categories one might expect. I can prattle on, but that's it in a quick bit: fun loving, outgoing, and always ready for the next big thing.
