Curt loves his job because he gets to showcase the many attractions and opportunities that Marana has to offer. He is passionate about creating partnerships with businesses, organizations, and individuals that share his vision of making Marana a great place to live, work, and play. He is always looking for new ways to promote Marana’s assets, such as its regional connectivity, business-friendly government, incentives, properties, talent pool, demographics, and the airport.
One of Curt’s favorite aspects of his job is tourism. He enjoys sharing the culture and history of Marana with visitors and locals alike. He is proud of the Discover Marana team, which works hard to provide information and resources for tourists and residents. He is a regular on the Marana courses, with the Golf Club of Dove Mountain being a favorite. But, he says the most memorable hole is No. 11 at Quarry Pines. It’s a par 3 downhill with canyons on the left, front and right of the green. He says it’s basically a tee to green shot or you’re in a mess of trouble.
When Curt has guests from out of town, he likes to take them to some of his favorite places in Marana. For ambience and experience, he takes them to the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain patio for cocktails and bites. For great Mexican food, he has several options, such as Guadalajara’s Grill, Nana’s Kitchen, and La Olla.
Curt prefers mild winters over monsoons because he can enjoy outdoor activities all year round. You may just see him on the course, on a trail or on his bike this winter.
