Before joining Make-A-Wish Arizona: I’ve worked at various non-profits and in community relations positions.

Education: Proud alum of local junior colleges and an Arizona State Sun Devil!

About me: For someone who was born and raised in Phoenix, it’s odd I am a beach boy at heart. I love the sun, surf, and sand along with any activities involving friends and family.

My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Arizona: Meeting the courageous souls who wish for something, the love-filled souls who care for them, the compassionate souls who plan their wishes, and the charitable souls who donate to bring them all hope, strength and joy.

My wish would be: I wish to have a Minion.

I once met an 9-year-old wish kid whose wish was delayed because his chemo port came out and had to be replaced. When I asked him how he felt about that, he said, 'Well, people might make fun of me because I’ll have two scars on my chest but I don’t really care. If they can see my chest, it means that I’m swimming and I LOVE swimming.' Despite the fact he lives with a life-threatening medical condition, he chooses to continually focus on the positive things in his life. This little man taught me a lesson I will never forget. ”
