Mr. Stone resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, with his amazing wife Judith, a Marketing Specialist, two unique children (Jonah and Ilana), two cats (Ozzy and Ace), and a Tibetan Terrier (Izzy).  Aside from his family, community and professional interests, Mr. Stone is committed to healthy living, seeking out and cultivating friendships, traveling, and following snow reports with the insatiable goal of first tracks on a bluebird day.
