About Me

Houston was an amazing place to grow up. The culture in Texas is second to none, a mix of cowboy and modernity. A sports fanatic as a kid, I played football, tennis, and track. The summers were hot, but much better than the frigid winters of the Northeast, allowing you to be outside year round. After high school, I went to UT Austin to study Economics and Finance. Once I graduated, I got a job in Houston and was there until I moved to LA. A few friends convinced me to move to Los Angeles, but once I got there I had to figure out what to do. With brief stints in the corporate world, I knew it wasn’t for me.

I embarked on my first business venture at the age of 24, having taught myself to code. My journey has led me to establish and guide several enterprises including: Tributan, Aruna, Clover Network, and Dapper/Savant Sites. These ventures span diverse industries and collectively employ a workforce of over 50 employees. All the businesses are self-funded, having never raised outside investor capital.

I’m still very active outside of work and am a avid reader, traveler, plays piano, and a blackbelt in Taekwondo.

Additionally, the skies are my canvas as I pilot a range of aircraft from the A-27 Tucano to the Gulfstream G650 and G600 (type rated). I love creating and building new projects. Many of the things I’ve done in my life is because of my relationships that have guided me through.
