I learned HTML and published my first website in 1996; since then, I have been at the forefront of technology. I am well-versed in tech, from hardware to software, networks, and programming. I am an enthusiastic Solidity developer, the coding language of the Ethereum blockchain, and the possibilities with Smart Contracts.
My areas of interest are:
How I Be
To be kind is the common element in every faith, religion, and spirituality. Contrarty to conventional wisdom, eventhough I'm East cost, I am kind and compassionalte.
Be Aware & Grateful
Awareness and gratitude is a pro feature that requires one to level up. Spending more time in the present rather than in my head, in my way paralyzed by analysis. I meditate and seek answers within to always live a life of mindfulness and gratitude. I was born curious and am constantly seeking the never-ending journey to self-actualization and self-expression.
Be Charitable & Generous
The secret to wealth. Deep down we all know this. What you give you receive. You get to keep what you give. This is my focus, to be of service and give. "You don't have to be rich to be generous. You have to be generous to be generous."
Commitements that matter
I choose to live life deliberately with commitments that matter, that touch and move me and everyone around me.
Always be smiling
Every moment is a chance to turn it around. It's Free to smile. If I'm not smiling, don't be silent. Remind me if I'm not smiling and displaying ingratitude for this beautiful life, please.:) Amori Fati, Momento Mori!
I am an avid entrepreneur and always looking for a solution to a pain point in an industry that interests me. My interests include real estate, sales, marketing, and blockchain.
I’m involved in Philanthropy and working on a platform that brings together 501C3 charities, donors, fundraisers, and volunteers. After scrutinizing how some noteworthy charities spend the donations and grants they receive, I am developing a simple rating system that matches donors to charities doing fantastic work in areas dear to the donor’s heart and uses Smart Contracts on the Ethereum blockchain to provide rapid deployment of donated funds in a transparent and accountable system.
I started my first business right out of high school. Here are the business ideas that I launched for profitability.
As a teenager, I spent my summers lifeguarding. In my first year at Roanoke College, I started New Wave Pools, a staffing company that provided certified lifeguards to hotels and apartments. I sold New Wave to Sierra Pools within a couple of years of its founding.
In September 1995, I launched Notebook Computers Inc. It quickly grew to over $3 Million in sales in the first 12 months. The focus was retail, Federal Government (GSA), and Non-Profits. Rapid growth led to venture interest, and I was securing seed funding to grow operations in Reno, Nevada; then, the dotcom bubble busted, and September 11th silenced the phones and online government ordering.
I founded Franchise Development Center to help successful businesses create a franchise model. I structured the franchise model and developed Operating Manuals. I also developed Marketing plans and Sales processes for a dozen business concepts.
I founded Real Pros Arizona and The Real Estate Lounge to provide brokerage services to custom home builders and experienced agents and to be the neighborhood brokerage for historic Phoenix neighborhoods.
Proud to have worked for
Here are the organizations that I am proud to have served:
I quickly rose through the ranks in the Manager In Training Program at Domino’s Pizza Team Washington to manage the flagship, high-volume franchise store. I learned how to manage costs and operate with peak efficiency because my compensation depended on the profitability of my store.
Papa John’s recruited me to open 12 locations between Baltimore and Annapolis as Regional Supervisor during their expansion into the Mid-Atlantic region. I worked closely with commercial real estate pros to determine and select the optimal locations for a new Papa John’s.
I assisted the Public Relations team at MCI in promoting their philanthropic initiatives. I helped publicize the “Library Link” program, which connected public libraries to the internet.
At AOL, I worked closely with C-level executives to develop and manage terms of service policy for members.
I’m very fortunate to have had the terrific training and valuable lessons learned from these businesses, especially the customer service training I received from the Ritz Carlton.
