Founder, Marketing, and Treasurer
I have a B.S. in Biosystems Engineering from the University of Arizona and currently work for a local Home Security Company, Connect Security. I had been looking for the past few years for something to get involved in with the community that was efficient with my time and money when a friend mentioned the 100+ Women Who Care Tucson. I did some research and looked into the general “giving circle” setup and instantly loved the idea. I wanted to be a part of it and since Tucson did not have a men’s giving circle, I figured I would try to start one!
Scott Blades is the founder and executive director of a local nonprofit organization that just commemorated 25 years of serving the community. He’s a champion of social justice, diversity, and equality, and a UA basketball and football season ticket holder. Scott got involved in 100+ Guys Who Give in order to engage more people in making a difference in our community through fun and impactful giving.
I am a member of the USAF Reserve and pilot at a major airline. I’ve lived in Tucson for 5 years with my wife and two daughters. Inspired by my wife, who is a 100+ Women Who Care Tucson member, I became involved in 100+ Guys as a way to be more involved in our community and help those in need. I am thrilled that 100+ Guys Who Give is so simple yet impactful!
I am a University of Arizona Eller College of Management graduate with a degree in Economics. I work as a Certified Financial Planner™ for a locally owned and operated Wealth Management firm. As a native Tucsonan, I find it extremely important to give back to the community that has given me so much over the years. 100+ Guys Who Give Tucson is a great opportunity to do so and I’m thrilled to be a part of the leadership team.
I am a retired business owner who has lived in Tucson for 33 years. I enjoy fishing, travelling, and music. When my son told me he was starting up 100+ Guys Who Give, I wanted to be a part of it and help in any way I could. I love the idea of pooling money together to make a bigger impact in our community in such a short amount of time.
I am a University of Arizona graduate with degrees in Operations Management and Finance, and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. I’ve been a licensed real estate agent since 1989 and became a full-time Realtor in 2012 after spending 12 years with Raytheon. I live with my wife and our two children and enjoy rock climbing and golf. My wife is a founding member of the local 100+ Women’s group. This type of charity is exactly what I’m looking for in Tucson. It follows a simple and impactful model to get the most amount of money to charities in an expedited fashion. It requires only a small amount of time each quarter and all the activities are properly vetted and very transparent.
I am a University of Arizona graduate working professionally as an aerospace engineer. In my free time you’ll find me rock climbing, playing baseball and snowboarding. As a Tucson native, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to help start a group that helps to give back to the amazing city I call home, and the 100+ Guys group is a great way to do it!
