My husband Bob and I live at 9135 E Buckskin Trail and have been for 19 years. We’re in Arizona for 22+ years from Chicago. I was with a CPA firm in Chicago for a looooong time and have been doing accounting work for an individual here for more than 20 years.  Happy to be the treasurer of the subdivision and will continue to do this as long as the HOA wants me to. Always available to answer questions or get you to someone who can.

I grew up in CA, moved to AZ in 2001. My wife, my 9 year old son and I have lived at the DSE since early 2015. I have been a member of the HOA since. I am a physician and work in the mid town Phoenix area. I like running and enjoy riding my road bike around. You may see me early mornings running in the community. 
I think we have a wonderful community and amazing neighbors and feel blessed to be a part of it.

My wife Barb and I have lived in DSE since 1994. We raised 2 children here and have seen a lot of changes over the years. What drew us to this neighborhood was the beautiful Sonoran Desert, which is protected by Scottdale’s Environmentally Sensitive Lands Ordinance or ESLO. That coupled with large lots and required Natural and Open Space serve to protect the unique character of our development. Our friends and neighbors have made this a great place to live.

My wife and I moved to DSE in 2010. We love and enjoy living in this beautiful community. 

I am originally from Chicago and relocated to the Phoenix area in 1982 with the company "Galco International Ltd".

Galco International is the designer and manufacturer of the Galco holsters brand. My role as VP of Research and Development includes design and engineering of all our leather goods, metal casting and injection molding facilities. In the 50 plus years that I have been with Galco, we have had our Gun holsters featured in several major TV series and motion picture films. I have had the pleasure of meeting many famous movie actors, rock and country musicians. We also developed custom designed  products for the police, military and intelligence agencies, domestic and foreign. 

In my spare time I enjoy playing the guitar and piano. My wife and I love to dance, and have taken many ballroom and country dance lessons together.
