Wayne loves Arizona. He was born and raised in the state and has spent most of his professional life in the greater Phoenix area. Wayne raised his four children in Mesa and currently resides in northeast Mesa with his wife, Teresa. Wayne savors the outdoors and on any given weekend can be found horseback riding in nearby mountains, hiking, kayaking the Salt River, mountain biking or running the canal. He and his wife recently took up the sport of sprint triathlons and they enjoy competing in local races. Wayne is active in his church and loves spending time with his family. And, he’s pretty handy with a grill.
