Memories, Movers and A Man Cave biltmore arcadia

L

uther Vandross had a song, "Dance with My Father." It always makes me think of my dad. Not because it was popular when I was younger, or that we have a memory of dancing to that song, but because of the lyrics within the song.

JUNE 2017 PUBLISHER

Kat McMahon | Kat.Mcmahon@LifestylePubs.com Mike McMahon | Mike.Mcmahon@LifestylePubs.com

I grew up in a musical family. Whether we were playing an instrument, listening to music, singing or dancing to music, it was always there. Mom and Dad would often sing, filling the kitchen with tunes I still can hear in my head and, of course, they'd dance. Boy, could they jitterbug! But what I hold close to my heart is dancing with my dad. When I was little, he'd let me stand on his feet, he'd twirl me around and I'd smile from ear to ear. I felt as light as a feather, safe in his arms and loved. I imagined dancing with him at my wedding. Unfortunately, I lost my dad the week of my wedding and never got the chance, but when I hear Vandross' song, it takes me back to when we did dance and, although I miss him dearly, it makes me smile. I was lucky enough to have a wonderful, courageous stepfather that was humorous, loving, a great singer—think Frank Sinatra!—and dancer. Although I didn't stand on his feet—maybe an occasional stumble!—I can remember dancing with him and, at times, felt like my dad was right there with us.  Today, I have a man in my life that, although he doesn't like to dance, makes me feel safe and loved. My husband, Mike, is a dad, stepdad and grandfather. I admire his integrity fiercely, and he's an excellent role model in which his son and my boys have benefitted greatly from. He's shown his devotion day in and day out. As a stepdad, sometimes referred to as "Stan" (a nickname my kids gave him), he's wholeheartedly embraced his role, and for that, I'm so grateful and blessed. As June is upon us, we think of summer vacation, the impending heat and Father's Day. Here at Paradise Valley Lifestyle, our June issue is for the men. We've got movers and shakers, gadgets, cars, hot and cold drinks, attire, toys and the ultimate man cave. Wait until you see that!

STYLE TIPS ON HOW TO LOOK GOOD WHILE BEATING THE SUMMER HEAT ARTICLE KORY KILMER

T

he switch has officially been flipped on the desert heat, and residents across the Valley are doing whatever they need to stay cool. For the fashion minded, however, a little bit of hot weather is no reason not to look your best. “The one trend I see this summer is that everyone is moving toward four-way stretch, both in pants and in shorts,” says Don Beale of At-Ease Fine Men’s Clothing located in Gainey Village. In addition to stretch material, Beale also sees shorts getting shorter, with nothing below the knee. “Long shorts have a tendency to make people look not only short but stout," Beale says. "I suggest a three-finger rule, from the top of the kneecap up. That is where guys really want their shorts now.”  Knit polo shirts have long been a summer favorite, but full button-down knit shirts are starting to become a popular choice as well. And for those needing to go with a more formal look, a linen-blend sport coat is a wonderful option as it has the breathability of linen, but also resists wrinkles which 100 percent linen garments are notorious for. “The short-sleeve shirt has always been an obvious and popular summer choice, but in the past it was always a looser, Tommy Bahamastyle,”  says Tom Simon of The Clotherie located in Biltmore Fashion Park. “This year we are seeing a move to a trimmer, more modern-looking short sleeve.” Though it might seem a bit counterintuitive, Simon also suggests something made of a lightweight wool as being one of the coolest fabrics you can wear for pants, as well as cotton in your shirts. “Just remember to lay off the starch—it really just stops the fabric from breathing,” Simon says. Other trends such as no-show socks help keep a clean and minimalistic look, and a shortbrimmed straw or even a Panama-style hat will help put the finishing touches on a style that will keep you looking good from head to toe.

Paradise Valley Lifestyle | June 2017


Don’t forget Dad This Father’s Day!

Along with two new engines, both vehicles feature an all-new chassis and interior concept.

L

ike all Porsche models, the Panamera is both dynamic and practical. In 2009, Porsche introduced the Panamera, and it quickly became the most usable sedan with the best handling on the market. For 2017, the Porsche Panamera sports sedan introduces two all-new models with familiar names: the Panamera 4S and Panamera Turbo. Along with two new engines, both vehicles feature an all-new chassis and interior concept. The new Panamera brings the Porsche flyline to the four-door body style by lengthening and widening the visual impact of the new chassis. The front wheels were moved forward, and the rear of the roof line was lowered, thereby creating a longer and sleeker profile. A 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 powers the 4S, while the Turbo is now equipped with a 4.0liter twin-turbo V8. Both models feature a centrally located direct injection nozzle and a pair of twin-scroll turbos located within the "V" of the V-engine architecture. Both engines are mated to a new eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung dual-clutch gear box and send power to all four wheels via Porsche's hang-on clutch system. Finally, the interior concept of the Panamera range includes a new advanced cockpit system that features black-panel touch activated switches and a large 12.3inch TFT touchscreen display. Two configurable displays flank the centrally mounted analog tachometer. Test drive the all new 2017 Porsche Panamera at Porsche North Scottsdale, 18000 N. Scottsdale Road, Phoenix, AZ 85054. Call them at 877.704.4088 or visit them at PorscheScottsdale.com.

" Before Anya I saw massage as a luxury that was a great form of stress relief. Now that I've been seeing her on a weekly basis I know how much more I and others can benefit from a weekly investment in ourselves. Not only has she helped to increase my range of motion, I can touch the floor when bending forward for the first time in my life, my speed has increased tremendously! I used to be a track runner in high school and college; had to stop due to a severe hamstring pull. Here I am almost 40 years later; with her help I am almost as fast as I was back then and my speeds keep increasing every year!" - Chris, Scottsdale

Movers, Shakers & Decision Makers

Some of Paradise Valley’s most influential businessmen gather at Mountain Shadows Resort to share their stories of success—and favorite drinks

MARK CANDELARIA Founder and Principal, Candelaria Design Drink of Choice: Old-Fashioned

Although a seasoned veteran in the architecture and design business, Mark Candelaria never had a set master plan for his success. After growing up in Colorado, Candelaria headed to Arizona in 1979 to attend Arizona State University. Although he didn’t study architecture while there, he started working as a draftsman for one of his professors, who was also a noted local architect. The two formed a close friendship as Candelaria delved more into the world of design. In 1987, he became a partner in his professor’s firm, CCBG, and upon his retirement, Candelaria decided to open up his own firm. He named the firm Candelaria Design, intending it to be “a boutique firm focused on residential architecture and creating experiences for clients in both the process of design and after the home is completed.” While the firm has grown well beyond Candelaria’s expectations, he and his team still hold true to that same founding philosophy today. WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR CREATING A FOREVER CUSTOM HOME?

“I love creating a home from a list of wants from a unique client on a unique site. It is these three ingredients that make the home, hence every home is different. I love the reward of happy clients and seeing a home I designed 35 years ago still enjoyed today.” 18

Paradise Valley Lifestyle | June 2017


ROBERT SHIELDS Founder, RedRover Living Drink of Choice: Classic Vodka Martini The story of how design firm RedRover Living came to be is one of passion, dedication and friendship. It all began in the small town of Ajo, Arizona, where, at the age of 5, Robert Shields met Barbara Hallum while playing a game of red rover in the schoolyard. What ensued was a lifetime friendship and business partnership. However, the path leading to the pair’s successful collaboration wasn’t always clear. Finding love in music, Shields started out as a classic pianist, attending the University of Arizona in Tucson before moving back east to finish his studies. While in Tucson, Shields formed a valuable friendship that would change the course of his career path forever. After making the switch to interior design, Shields launched a successful 25-year career both in the U.S. and abroad before returning to his Arizona roots. In Arizona, a little more than 50 years after their first meeting, Shields finally struck up a partnership with Hallum and together they launched RedRover Living. WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR STARTING A NEW BUSINESS MODEL?

“I witnessed a major shift in the interior design industry over the past decade. I listened carefully to the kind of things that I was regularly hearing from my clients and decided to create a design platform aligned with client demands for discounts on furnishings and affordable rates without complicated contracts and retainer fees.”

DAVID RIPPY President, Arizona Paint Supply Drink of Choice: Vodka Tonic with Lime David Rippy’s passion for paint began in a most unlikely place: while he was working as an audit partner with a large, regional CPA firm. There, he closely interacted with many construction and real estate-related clients, including a Benjamin Moore Paint retail dealer. Rippy was immediately taken by the amount of science that went into making the high-quality paint, and the wheels began to turn from there. Six years ago, after Rippy’s firm merged with another one, he decided it was time to strike out on his own and start a business with his son. That’s when he remembered his time working for the Benjamin Moore Paint dealer, and, after extensive research, found there was a need for the brand here in Arizona. Last spring, Rippy contacted Benjamin Moore and was awarded the dealership, with success being only a few swift brushstrokes away. WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR PICKING THE PERFECT PAINT?

“Inside, outside, wood, metal, concrete, kitchen, bath and so on. Our paints are designed for specific purposes to allow for the highest performance. If we can get our customers the right paint, even if it is a little more expensive, it saves them money by not having to repaint as often.” CONTINUED >

MOVERS, SHAKERS AND DECISION MAKERS (CON TI N U ED)

ROGER COLE Franchise Owner, Amazing Lash Studio Drink of Choice: Margarita After working for 17 years as a senior mechanic at UPS, Roger Cole decided to embark on a new career path. Always driven toward the technology industry, Cole completed his associate’s degree in information technology and soon become director of IT for a health and wellness-related franchise at the corporate level. While the health and wellness industry had its appeals, Cole found his true calling on the beauty side of the salon industry. Having had success with the corporate part of the franchising industry, Cole wanted to try his hand at the other side of the industry as a franchisee. That’s when he came upon Amazing Lash Studio, a new franchise concept he felt had the same potential for success and growth he had experienced in the past, and the rest was history. WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR CREATING A LASTING COMMUNITY BUSINESS?

“My wife and I chose Amazing Lash Studio as a retirement venture because of the potential success as a concept, and we looked at it as a longterm investment in the community. This is in part as to why we chose the Paradise Valley area since many of the residents encompass the same ideas and wants we strive for.”

Drink of Choice: IPADUTCH BROS. COFFEE FRANCHISE OWNER, DRINK OF CHOICE: IPA

While a hot cup of coffee on a chilly Oregon morning always held a certain appeal for Jim Thompson, the former auto dealer would have never dreamed of making a career out of the drink. However, after selling his auto firm, Thompson went on to seek fulfillment in a new career path. And he found it right at home in Grants Pass, Oregon, where a love of coffee runs deep in the town’s veins. It is the place where brothers Travis and Dane Boersma started the first Dutch Bros. Coffee 25 years ago, and where the company’s headquarters are located today. Finding passion, excitement and enjoyment in the Dutch Bros. Coffee business, Thompson, along with his wife, Dr. Janice McCarthy, moved to Arizona to start their own set of franchises. Success has been swift for Thompson, who now operates 16 stores throughout the Valley, with five more to come within the next two years. WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR FINDING PASSION AND FULFILLMENT IN YOUR WORK?

“I love this company and strive to make every human contact I have a good one. With so much love from over 600 employees and the giveback to local charities each month, love abounds!” 20

JEFF STOKES Vice President, HYPOXI USA Drink of Choice: Tito’s Vodka, Soda and Lime

An avid sports enthusiast and competitive team player from an early age, it seemed natural that Vice President of healthy lifestyle brand HYPOXI USA, Jeff Stokes, would fall into the fitness industry. After graduating from Salisbury University with a B.S. in Business Management, Stokes went on to pursue what eventually became a successful 25-year career owning, operating and consulting health clubs, including some of the country’s most well-known brands. An expert in all things health and fitness, Stokes made quite a name for himself over the years, and company’s started taking notice. One such company was Fitness and Lifestyle Group headquartered in Sydney, Australia who offered Stokes the opportunity to launch HYPOXI in the U.S. and Canada. The rest was history, with the first location opening right here in Scottsdale, and soon after followed by a Phoenix Biltmore location. WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR MAINTAINING A HEALTHY WORK/LIFE BALANCE?

“As the leader of a healthy lifestyle brand, it’s important to practice what I preach. I stay active by exercising five-six days a week, coach my kid’s sports teams, attend school functions, schedule “date nights” with my wife, and take regular vacations with my family. I believe we are more productive and effective when we find balance.” CONTINUED >

MOVERS, SHAKERS AND DECISION MAKERS (CON TI N U ED)

JESSE THOMPSON Area Director of Sales and Marketing, Hotel Valley Ho & Mountain Shadows Resort Drink of Choice: Hundred Acre Cabernet

Arizona native Jesse Thompson got his first taste of the hospitality industry while working as a night turndown associate at The Boulders Resort as a junior in high school, and he has never looked back since. Twenty-five years later, Thompson is still at it, having held successful positions at three Pointe Hilton Resorts, Embassy Suites and The Merv Griffin group. In time, however, Thompson felt he needed a change from the corporate hospitality industry. That’s when he heard of a small company named Westroc, headed up by William J. Nassikas. Enamored by the appeal of a boutique hotel company, Thompson accepted a position as director of group sales at what would eventually become the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa. Finding a home with Westroc, he went on to open Hotel Valley Ho, leading its sales and marketing efforts, and the company’s newest property, Mountain Shadows Resort in Paradise Valley. WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR STAYING ON THE CUTTING EDGE OF YOUR INDUSTRY?

“Stay open to change. The hospitality industry evolves rapidly through technology and travel trends. Staying open to learning about these opportunities and constantly reinventing yourself is the key to being effective.” 22

f you haven’t been to Sip Coffee and Beer Garage on the corner of 36th Street and Indian School, you are in for an enjoyable experience. Formerly an auto oil and lube shop, Sip has been creatively transformed into a popular neighborhood hangout. The relaxing atmosphere has a great selection of specialty coffees, an inviting menu, locally crafted beers, handcrafted cocktails and popular wines that attract customers of all ages.  Sip Coffee and Beer Garage, which opened in November 2015, is the second location for owners Travis and Tida Radevski who opened Sip Coffee and Beer House  at Goldwater and Scottsdale Road  in 2014. It's a dream came true for Travis who grew up in a family of restaurant owners. He wanted to duplicate the comfortable, community feeling he remembered as a kid when he’d observe men gathering together drinking coffee and telling stories. At that time, it was at the McDonald's in his small town. Today, it’s at Sip.  Alex Cardineau, operating partner, met the Radevskis when he was bartending in Tempe. They immediately knew he was the right guy to join them in their endeavor. His marketing background, outgoing personality and work experience were just the right combination to run the second location. “Our goal was to create a small-town environment in a big city that is warm, welcoming and open,” Cardineau says. “Sip has a casual, friendly atmosphere where people like to hang out with their friends or meet new ones.”

SOM E TH I N G FOR E VE RYON E Coffee lovers will enjoy the many specialty coffees available made with Cartel Coffee Lab coffee. Kaitlynn, the friendly barista and “Beerista,” as she refers to herself, suggested I try a Kevlar coffee that is made with black dripped coffee, MCT oil that has a hint of coconut flavor and butter. It was very flavorful and different. Equally good was my vanilla latte served with a heart design in the foam. Kaitlynn was originally a regular customer who fell in love with the Sip concept and became part of the team.  24

Open-face short rib sandwich with a 12 West Suh Dude brown ale

The menu lists a number of sandwiches and salads all made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. I enjoyed the popular short rib sandwich with hot quinoa and a mix of mushrooms. I was impressed with how tasty it was and how generous the servings are. Sandwiches come with a choice of chips, green salad or potato salad. Other popular sandwiches include a turkey club, BLT and a hummus veggie sandwich. An assortment of breakfast pastries and bagels are offered as well as a large breakfast menu. Some favorites are the breakfast burrito and breakfast sandwich, which is served all day and comes on brioche with a spicy aioli. Brunch on weekends is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with $5 mimosas, bloody marys and screwdrivers

SO M U C H M ORE Sip has a drive-in window that is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for commuters. The oversized, dog-friendly patio is a perfect place to congregate and there’s a street-side patio in front. If that’s not enough, an underground tiki bar is located where the oil pits use to be. Owners Jason Asher and Rich Fernari opened a small bar called UnderTow located below Sip which serves only Polynesian handcrafted specialty drinks. It’s an experience in itself and reservations are highly recommended. Local craft beers are rotated regularly and a variety of handcrafted specialty cocktails make the Sip evening hour interesting. Some unique delights are Grease Monkey, Scuttle Butt, Fat Fender and Maid in AZ. Music adds to the ambiance where you’ll find local artists performing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and during brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A great happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday offers drink specials and $5 appetizers that include funky mushrooms hummus, artichoke dip and chicken quesadilla. There is always something happening at Sip and you’ll find yourself wanting to join in on the experience again and again.

magine for a moment returning from a long trip. You haven’t worried about your luxury home because you live in a lock-and-leave community. While waiting on the tarmac, you fire up your hot tub with a touch of a button on your phone. On the way to your Ferrari, you decide it’s warmer out than expected. You grab your phone again to lower your home’s air conditioning, flick on a few lights and turn on your favorite sports channel. In this fantasy, your favorite team is playing. When you arrive, you opt for the one-car garage instead of two. Then you and your Ferrari descend into a glass showcase located in the basement. The wet bar sure looks inviting right now. Perhaps you should check out what’s available in the glass-exposed wine room. It was a long flight. Still daydreaming? This man cave is a reality in the Village of Mountain Shadows model home, located in Paradise Valley. Four companies came together with a sole purpose: to showcase the best of what they do. Cullum Homes built it, Candelaria Design Associates designed it, IMI Interior Design decked it out and CCS Presentation Systems did the home automation. “It is a very open floor plan with a bar in between the entertainment area and the car bar,” says Evelyn Jung, an associate at Candelaria. “One of the most important features is making sure a standard window well has enhanced elements, like water features and detailed designs. The idea is to create a man cave without necessarily feeling like it’s completely underground.”

While a car bar is a brilliant addition, it’s not mandatory for a proper den. “I think every man cave focuses on uniqueness, quality entertaining space and making sure your friends and family are comfortable. We love hearing that our homeowners never want to leave their house because we designed it perfectly,” Jung says. “It’s truly a joy designing our clients' homes and many people think we only do very large custom estates. We love doing remodels, additions, basically anything to inspire people to live in their dream home.”

BEAUTY AND BRAINS “It’s an undercover luxury home because you’d never guess from the outside that there’s a car in a showcase in the basement,” Travis Ferger, general manager of CCS HOME, says. “Although the home is about 7,500 square feet, from the outside it looks like your average 3,000-square-foot home. It represents a lock-and-leave lifestyle, very low maintenance and a small yard.” CCS programs all the electronics in the house, including sound systems, lights, shades, security, locks, audio, video and water features, like pool pumps and thermostats, to be accessible from a phone app called Savant. They use commercial-grade products and teach clients how to use them safely. “One of the biggest changes in our industry is we aren’t audio video people anymore, we are becoming IT guys,” Ferger says. “The wi-fi

is the most important thing to any client and a huge focus of what we do.” Ferger enjoys the personal settings feature of the Savant app. It can save several actions to be performed with a push of a single button. For example, a client might set up a “morning” button, so with one touch of the app the shades will rise, the television turns on and the coffee machine starts percolating. “You can completely automate your home to help smooth out your daily routine without needing an audiovisual guy every time,” Ferger says. If pushing buttons on the app is inconvenient, there’s always voice control. Just tell your house what to do.

DREAM COME TRUE You can either imagine the unique design features: the 123-inch projection screen, the huge audio system with theater and surround sound and Lutron lighting, or you can stop by and take the real thing for a test drive. The home, built last year, serves as a meeting place for realtors and clients until it goes up for sale when the community is built out. “We are always looking for practical and creative ways to design our homes and make them unique,” Jung says. Also, you never know what treasure you might find in the man cave’s car bar. Today, there are two Ferraris and a custom chopper. Occasionally, Barrett-Jackson displays a vehicle or two. “Sometimes the cars are worth more than the house,” Ferger says. June 2017 | Paradise Valley Lifestyle

Parting Thoughts

W H AT M Y

GREAT DAD TA U G H T M E

SOUTHWEST AUTISM RESEARCH & RESOURCE CENTER PRESIDENT AND CEO ARTICLE DANIEL OPENDEN | PHOTOGRAPHY ERIKA GREENE PHOTOGRAPHY

G

rowing up, my dad frequently shared with my sister and me that he had essentially grown up without a dad, and therefore, didn’t have a role model to inform how he would father us. Yet, today, as the father of two young boys, I strive to be as great of a dad as my dad was to us. The truth is, my dad set the bar unbelievably high. Unlike him, I know exactly what it looks like to be a great dad because I had the best one. Grady, 8, and Cody, 4, brighten our lives each and every day. My wife, Erica, and I are constantly in awe of their curiosity, thirst for fun and learning, athletic interests and obliviousness to time because they are totally in the moment. Even during the most difficult times with our boys, we couldn’t be prouder parents. They motivate us every day to be the best parents we can be. As a father, that means looking back at the incredible job my dad did and trying to pass some of it on to my sons. My dad would do anything for me. To this very day, my dad will be completely selfless when it comes to my sister and me. There’s no favor or request we can ask of him that he wouldn’t try to make happen for us. I want my kids to know they can always count on me. Show up and participate. My dad was at just about every one of my practices and games growing up, and, until I got older, always offered to be an assistant coach. I do my best to not only be there for my kid’s various activities but to join in. Some of my best times as a dad have been on the baseball field with Grady and his friends,

believing I was a kid again (and paying for it the next morning). Both of my sons also attended SARRC’s inclusive preschool, so I’ve had the benefit of seeing them at work every day. Today, when other dads’ breaks during the workday are spent getting coffee, I can go hang out with Cody and his friends in his classroom. Be personable. My dad valued people tremendously, especially friends of mine, who were personable and easy to talk to. I try to pass this on to our boys by ensuring they stop to say hello to people and letting them know how I proud I am when they are so engaging with others.  Have special father-son rituals. Whenever my mom had to travel for business, my dad brought sugary cereal into the house. When he made our lunches, he always wrote a note and slipped it into my lunch box. While I don’t do sugary cereals, when my wife is out of town I always leave a note in my kids’ lunch—and a small piece of candy. They look forward to this in the same way I did. Spend time together as a family. Father-son time is great, but my dad also emphasized the importance of us spending time together as a family. That’s one of the reasons you’ll often find our family having dinner together at Los Dos Molinos or watching the D-backs at Chase Field. Hopefully, I’ll become the model for Grady and Cody that my dad was for me. And they’ll be lucky if they enjoy being a father half as much as I enjoy being theirs.
