Gate Host

Serving Vistancia Since

July 2017

Originally From

I recently relocated from Boulder, Colorado to be near family. I lived in Arizona years ago and it has long been my dream to return.

What I Do

My primary duty is Gate Host at the Construction Gate. On occasions I also work at the Main Gate to fill in for coworkers requiring time off.  As a Gate Host, I enjoy the responsibility of ensuring that residents and qualified workers obtain proper access to Blackstone while maintaining a safe and professional environment.


Motorcycling, hiking, golfing, and professional sports.


My awesome wife Karen shares my passion for motorcycling - she owns and rides her own Harley so I always have a partner to enjoy our beautiful country on two wheels.  Although my adult kids Carrie and Shane live out of state, I am fortunate to enjoy family times with a sister and three brothers living in the Phoenix area.  Karen and I have been blessed with 9 and soon to be 10 terrific grandchildren between us. Rounding out my family is our dog Jaz who certainly has plenty of personality.
