Hometown: Phoenix, Arizona
First job: My first job was when I was fifteen. My father was building a subdivision in South Phoenix and I was watering the stucco on the houses in 116 degree heat so the stucco wouldn’t crack. It wasn’t glamorous by any means, but I enjoyed looking at all of the homes being built. I feel in love with real estate then and there!
Favorite AZ restaurant: I really love Vincent’s Bistro. It’s a whole in the wall down the street from where I live in Arcadia that I’ve been going to for years. Vincent is a wonderful chef ( James Beard Award Winner) and Scott one of the waiters always treats me like family.
Person who has impacted your life the most: That’s a hard one. My mother impacted my eye for seeing beauty in all things and my father instilled in me a very strong work ethic. The combination of the two have certainly made me the man I am today.
Your biggest accomplishment in your eyes: I think my biggest accomplishment was becoming a published author in November 2017. The fact that thousands of people across the world read my book and hear my voice on audible is amazing. Life can be difficult at times, but it’s awesome knowing you helped someone grow and realize the best version of themselves.
The biggest obstacle you have overcome: Starting RMB Luxury with my father a little over eight years ago was difficult. I remember living in a small condo with my dad as soon as I graduated college and it certainly was a huge fall from grace from my lifestyle as a teenager. But I slowly learned humility and the importance of having great people in my life. Years passed, times got better, and I try to remind myself daily how much I have to thankful for.
Someone who inspires you: My father has always inspired me. He has an unwavering sense of optimism, very selfless in how he lives his life, and does what he says he’s going to do. It can be a rare quality in this world today but I always admired him for that.

Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: Find out what you want to do in life and get as close as possible to the people already doing it. Soak up all the information you can! Work for free if you have to. Follow the best and innovate on what they’re doing to make your own dream a reality. Also, make sure you take public speaking classes and can write well. The ability to communicate effectively got me very far in life at a young age.
What you think makes someone fabulous: Someone that has a defined purpose and gets up everyday to realize that goal. They help others solve problems, they are nice, and they leave people with a smile and a positive attitude.
