How much is your father worth?
My father is worth just shy of $2 Billion liquid, and he’s on a rapid trajectory be worth significantly more.
What do you do for a living?
As for my current job, I work a generic IT position with a standard salary – nothing that will produce the kind of fortune my father’s work has.
What kind of car do you drive?
A 2014 Subaru Outback. Prior to that, a very-used ’98 Outback. Probably not the answer you were expecting!
As for my parents, the primary cars at each property are a Mercedes GLS and SL Roadster; they have lots of others, but nothing too fancy. Mostly old Chevy and Ford cars primarily driven by the various employees they have.
What do you do for work and why did you go into that field?
I’m a computer systems adminsitrator for a small company because it’s what I enjoy and it doesn’t require a large amount of non-immediate work. I didn’t inherit my dad’s strong ambition and drive, unfortunately.

Pamlea Littky’s Photo Series ‘Vacancy’ Gives Us A Glimpse Of What It’s Like To Live In The Small Towns Of Death Valley
While driving between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Pamela Littky, was exposed to the small towns at either edge of Death Valley, the legendary region of the Mojave Desert that hosts the hottest and driest climate in the US. Anyone who has ever been there can tell you that there is little else on either side except for long, empty stretches of straight-line desert highway. But the Mojave’s harshest conditions have not deterred all living things. The towns that both claim the title of “Gateway to Death Valley” – Baker, California and Beatty, Nevada – are tight-knit communities of people who remain settled where most merely pass through.
From domestic scenes to colorful bars, trailers to bingo halls, and always the harshly beautiful and unrelenting landscape, Pamela brings the everyday life of these communities to vivid relief. Melancholy, atmospheric, sometimes surreal, these photographs feature people who are proudly and vivaciously individualistic. The culmination of visits that spanned years, Vacancy depicts a way of life that seem to defy how the rest of the increasingly fast-paced, urbanized world operates.
If you get a call from a stranger asking, “Can you hear me?” hang up the phone immediately, the Federal Communications Commission warns.
The con aims to get victims to say the word “yes” so scammers can record it. The affirmative response is used by the fraudster to authorize unwanted charges — whether it’s to a credit card, a cable or phone account or subscriptions.
Here’s how it works: You might receive a call from someone — recent reports say the scammers are claiming they’re from a home security agency, a cruise line or associated with Social Security. After the introduction, the recording will ask if you can hear the caller clearly. If you answer “yes,” there’s a possibility the scam artist has recorded you and will use the response to sign you up for a product or service, and then demand payment. If you refuse to pay, the caller may use your recorded “yes” to confirm your purchase agreement.
In many cases, the scammers already have the person’s phone number, which can be used to authorize third-party charges; or they may have a victim’s credit card number or cable bill as the result of a data breach. When the victim disputes any charges to an account, the scammer can counter that they have your consent on a recorded line.
The practice is known as “cramming” and is becoming more prevalent.
» If you receive a call that sounds similar or asks questions seeking affirmation, avoid responding with “yes,” “sure” or “OK.”
» If you are asked a similar question on the phone or are asked to press a button to be placed on the Do Not Call registry, just hang up. Saying anything may help the scam artist identify that you have an active phone number. No government agency will ever solicit for the Do Not Call registry.
» Check your credit card, phone and cable statements carefully for any unfamiliar charges. If you suspect you have been victimized, call the billing company and dispute anything you did not authorize. The earlier you identify the unauthorized charges on your account, the easier it will be to recover any lost money.
