Title: Vice President at Goettl Air Conditioning & Sunny Plumber

Married/Single: Married

Kids: 2 daughters Samantha and Emily, and my son Zack

My day is like…

getting through a significant day of work, then ending it with my family.

I was born…

in Philadelphia, let’s go E-A- G-L- E-S!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the weather. No more daily rain, raking, shoveling, wind hurting my face, dressing in a dozen layers just to run a quick errand, etc.

I’m listening to…

our newly adopted puppy squeaking his new toy. He is making sure that is all anyone can hear at the moment, a payback gift from mom, it contains 5 squeakers.

One thing I cannot live without…

is my coffee in the morning. I need to get in at least one cup at 5 am just before diving into my work emails.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

older. I’ve gained more patience since.

I’m inspired by…

my wife. She is a strong person. She bends without breaking, while keeping everything together and holding the family up at the same time. She is incredible.

The one person who motivates me is…

there has been several people that I have met, but the man in the mirror does it most. It has not been easy, but I’ve found that when I took the responsibility for my own motivation, I was able to meet more of my own goals and exceed my own expectations.

The perfect day would be…

an early round of good golf followed by an evening with my wife. She is my best friend. It doesn’t matter what we do, we always have a wonderful time.

My first job was…

caddying at a country club. A group of us from the neighborhood would get up early on Saturdays’ hitch hike out to the Country Club. The job was a good way for an underaged kid to earn some real money for some real unnecessary stuff I’m sure I had to have at the time.

My life…

has been an adventure, struggle, and a joy. I’m grateful for it all.

I’m currently working on…

tweaking two already successful companies, Goettl Air Conditioning & Sunny Plumber to the next level in customer experience.
