Personal Background

I have been married to Barb Eagan since 1989. She is also a real estate agent who specializes in helping “primary buyers.” We have 2 cats and have been living on Sunrise Mountain (East Side) since 2004. My hobbies include gardening, reading, and triathlons. We travel about a month out of the year to different parts of the world but our favorite destination is Mexico.

My parents were hippies (mom an artist / dad a musician) and have lived in 8 different states / 40 different cities. I left home at the age of 17. Barb also left home when she was 16 and we met in Tucson while going through the University of Arizona. We both started with nothing and we are not afraid of rolling up our sleeves to get something done.
