The Home Trust International (HTI): What first compelled you to enter your business field?

JM: In the great outdoors, with my Nikon in hand! It is easy to make a quick escape for a hike in the mountains in the vicinity of Phoenix or up to the mountains of Northern Arizona. I love the mountains and I feel it is tough to beat the Canadian Rockies, but my wife Yasaman and I sometimes joke that her love language is “beaches.” When at all possible and when we have time to travel out of state, we endeavor to make sure a sandy beach on the coast is included in the itinerary.
