I got to tell the story of how I met Dr. Ramsey the first time. He's a great dentist who really cares. http://youtu.be/nm8Oa8GxQKQ
Ramsey Family Dentistry
3336 E Chandler Heights Rd #115, Gilbert, AZ 85298
Seriously? It's so hard to have dental work done when you are laughing in the chair. Dr. Ramsey is one of those dentists you wish you had as a kid. He is funny and always has a wisecrack to lighten the mood. He's also a good person. When my dad was hospitalized and had emergency surgery, Dr. Ramsey paid him a visit because he cares. He's genuine, real and the new office is great. It ALMOST makes me look forward to going to the dentist. I said ALMOST!

Though I am Jewish, I have friends in nearly every faith. One of them is not only Mormon, but a Bishop in the LDS church. 

After his first year as Bishop in his church, Russ Hill shared some thoughts on his journey. It's an incredible read from an incredible man. This blog post "Confessions of a Mormon Bishop" is profoundly deep and clearly powerful. Feel free to share.

I love shooting weddings with you, but you need to carry life insurance for this crazy stuff. I love your work.

I have ZERO ties to the restrictive world of corporate clock punching.

  • Wedgie Creative
    Head Wedgie Giver | Partner, 2012 - present
    At Wedgie Creative we believe every brand, company or business deserves a fighting chance. We design and implement unique branding, advertising and marketing campaigns globally, nationally and right here in your own backyard.
  • Data Doctors
    V.P. Media Group, 2011 - 2013
    Brand development, marketing, media distribution, content creation, customer acquisition and growth strategies. Growing brand awareness, content channels, and media presence. Facebook: When I arrived at Data Doctors in March, 2011, the company was sitting at just over 2,000 Facebook fans with a weekly reach of 80,000. Today we have a Facebook presence with 7,000 engaged fans reaching almost 2,000,000 a week. I did this by creating content that engages the audience and makes them want to share. YouTube: Our YouTube channel was sitting at 20 subscribers with 10,000 video views. Today we are at nearly 500 subscribers and 300,000 video views. I started to create tip videos, shortcuts, and how-to's. These videos quickly grew our fan base. Radio: In 2011 the weekly Computer Corner radio show was heard by an audience that ranged from 55,000 to 85,000 listeners per weekend in one market. I rebranded us to the Data Doctors Radio Program, and added internal marketing messages to the broadcast. In 2012, we added daily Tech Tips to our content distribution. These 60 second, daily tips impact anyone who uses technology on a daily basis. Today, we average 1.6 million listeners in multiple markets, 6 days a week. This was no easy task. Using my years of media experience, I came up with a strategy to provide content these stations needed. TV: With relationships in almost every TV station in Phoenix, our media footprint in our own backyard was healthy, but not scalable. I took the Tech Tips concept and created self produced TV packages that can be dropped in to any AM or PM TV newscast to provide value to viewers. We now share our Tech Tips with Belo TV stations across the country. Recently developed was Data Doctors VIP service (virtual interview process). We are able to provide virtual interviews for any TV or radio station. They never have to send a reporter or camera crew to get the tech story. Data Doctors media presence has grown exponentially.
  • KTAR
    Image Director, 1997 - 2011
    Created imaging, branding and positioning for Sports and News/Talk products. Coached local talent, built new talk shows, overhauled the sound of the station. Developed and implemented branded video strategy. Created unique marketing and branding for Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Cardinals and developed overall messaging for each season. When KTAR purchased the 92.3 FM signal, I was charged with creating two separate and unique sounding properties. The News/Talk 92.3 brand and Sports 620 KTAR brand were born. These two stations quickly became healthy, strong brands, with loyal listenership and exponential growth. In 2008, I was responsible for creating the KTAR.com video brand. Using Tri Casters, multicamera feeds and an incredible team, I created the first TV station inside a radio station anywhere in the US. This mutli-platform coverage launched on election night 2008 with live streaming video, an anchor desk, bloggers, radio coverage, TV coverage, etc. Today that video branding lives on with daily content, weekly web shows and in house video production. As the KTAR-FM brand grew stronger, we launched community fundraisers for local organizations. The first charity radio event we created with Action for Autism benefitting SARRC, southwest autism research and resource center. From the event's inception in 2008 we raised almost $500,000 in this radio fundraiser. Through emotional storytelling with radio vignettes, to online video vignettes and live streaming, this annual fundraiser continues to grow. When we had the opportunity to take over Phoenix Children's Hospital's annual Give-A-Thon, I led our creative team into the most powerful and rewarding event ever. In our first year as the content and broadcast partner, we raised over a million dollars for the kids at PCH. Through the most emotional storytelling, videos that could put you in any parents shoes, we were able to break down barriers to donating, and make people give from their hearts.

As a business owner I can tell you how difficult it is to fit into the box most consumers fit in to. When you own a company, you don't necessarily have the traditional income model of a W2 from an employer, you are the employer. That creates a series of challenges requiring an incredible amount of documentation to prove your credit worthiness. Traditionally, mortgage companies require you fit in a box and meet a series of checks, in order to qualify. When the underwriter is across the country and only available by email, it's difficult to communicate a specific situation. That's where Academy Mortgage and Marcus Watson come in. With Academy's in house underwriting, Marcus was able to help us qualify and get our mortgage. The underwriters were able to look at me as a person, not a file and look at my income and distribution as a whole in order to make their decision. I wasn't rubber stamp rejected because I don't look like a typical W2 customer. Needless to say, if we ever do another home, a refi or investment property, Marcus is our guy and Academy Mortgage Mesa is our mortgage company. Great, great, team!

We've been using Arizona RV Supercenter for many years now. Anna Marie is a rockstar. Not only does she make you feel welcome, she remembers customer names and is genuinely concerned about you. The entire staff of technicians are some of the best we've ever used. They are incredibly detailed and have kept all of our RV's in top shape. I wouldn't use anyone else for service. They are top notch.

The pizza is good for $5 pies but the counter help is inconsistent and needs training. Is it the best pizza in town? Not even close, but it's the best $5 pizza.

Holy crap does this place not have ANY customer service in their DNA. As the retail customer and the person that ultimately keeps them in business, you'd think they'd be a little warmer, more helpful and willing to work with you. They are not. In fact my wife and I found them snobby, condescending and not at all helpful. During the remodel process, we had to go to the slab yard a few times, each time felt like we were an inconvenience to them. The final trip to Arizona Tile came a week before fabrication. Our fabricator Diamond Granite (see their AWESOME review on Yelp, went to confirm our slab was there. He asked them to pull it for us so that we could see it at 1:30PM as we had a very limited window of time to view the slab before picking up kids at school. When we arrived, they were once again too busy for us and had us take a seat. When we got to talk to someone they were unaware of our slab and asked who had our paperwork? How are we supposed to know? We were told they never pull a slab until a customer arrives and we'd have to wait for a large truckload that was now being offloaded. We told them we had to be out at 2PM. It was now 1:45. At 2PM, we were told to be patient. At 2:15PM someone went out to see if the slab was there. It wasn't until 2:20PM a full 50 minutes after we arrived, that we had minutes to confirm our slab choice. I couldn't wait to get out of there. My wife and I hated the experience of working with Arizona Tile. The other company we looked at was Bedrosian's and the experience there was night and day different. Our recommendation: Go to Bedrosian's first for great customer service. If they don't have what you want, be prepared to get crappy customer service in exchange for the larger selection.

On our first visit (shortly after they opened), we found the lobster bisque was out of this world. For an east coast native, this is the best seafood restaurant I've found in Arizona. The bar manager John makes a mean Old Fashioned too. My wife had the Tide Roast which was an 8 out of 10, I had the gumbo which was 9 out of 10. High Tide has become our go to seafood restaurant. We've now had almost every item on their great menu and have yet to be disappointed. High Tide needs to be high on your list. Go, eat and enjoy.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I don't know if WOW is acceptable? Elite spent hours detailing the exterior of our camper. After washing it and removing the oxidation they brought it back to a factory shine. I cannot wait to have them back to work on our cars.

From the start of our kitchen remodel, my wife and I both had some negative experiences with a few granite company's and the seemingly careless, flakey way they handled business. It wasn't until we sat down with Alex Bores at Diamond Granite that we felt like we had found a reliable, reputable company to work with. The first thing we noticed was that Diamond Granite had pricing and transparency in the buying process. Not one of the other companies we met with, were willing to, or could give us pricing. We knew from the moment we selected our materials, what the cost would be. We then had to select our actually slabs, and that was something that was not in Diamond's control. We went to Arizona Tile and Bedrosian's to find the 2 different materials we needed. I can honestly say that Bedrosian's knows how to treat customers, Arizona Tile could give a crap about you. I have reviews for both of them on Yelp as well. Alex was there through every step in the process, making sure our needs were met and that his team was doing everything to our satisfaction. His crew was able to get in days ahead of schedule when the carpenter had finished the cabinets install ahead of schedule. They were fast, efficient and extremely courteous. In the midst of the week between template and install, my wife had a change of heart in the island. No problem. Alex stopped everything, help us get the different material and the slab was changed with no stress. This wasn't an easy task as we required a super sized slab for the island 128" x 56". But again, Alex and Diamond Granite came through for us. Install day came and the guys did a fantastic job. The kitchen was really shaping up. Our only complaint (and it's small when looking at the big picture). The backsplash tile installers were clearly in a hurry and did sloppy work the first day. They left chipped glass all over our driveway and kitchen counters. Once again Alex stepped in. On day 2 they came out, removed the tiles that didn't meet ours or Alex's standards and completed the job beautifully. If you want transparency in the process, great customer service and AWESOME follow through, you want to work with Diamond Granite. We will and have already recommended them to others.
