Ted is a native of Southern California, but grew up an Arizona Wildcat fan. He graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in entrepreneurship and marketing in 1992 before starting his career in corporate retail. Later, he ventured out as an entrepreneur by building a successful business in the insurance/finance industry over the past 20 years. Additionally, he has developed and sold commercial real estate businesses. As an alum of the McGuire Center, Ted is responsible for growing and connecting a local and national network of mentors and advisors to support experiential education and student venture development. Ted works with fellow alums to sustain the proud tradition of fellow Wildcats! As an avid fan, Ted is hopeful that one day they will play in the Rose Bowl! Ted enjoys spending time with his wife April (C’92), family and friends – especially now that his children have become the next generation of Arizona wildcats. Ted is known for his love of laughter as well as his corny jokes.
