A bit of background:

My quest for learning and connecting began at Binghamton University, where I studied biology and was a member of the crew team. Working as a full-time EMT and bartending at night, I was able to pay my own way through school. 

After graduating, I didn't get into any of the medical schools I wanted, so I looked for a job in NYC. During the market crash in 2008, I joined a Wall Street Asset Management Firm in NY as a broker trainee and cold caller, while studying at night to get my real estate license. I then joined Bond NY, and my career really took off. Within 2 years, I was the top producing agent in the office, received several promotions, and developed a team of 6 producers.

Life took a dramatic turn in 2010 when my father passed away. It was during this time that I began to focus on options trading, marketing, and sales. Thanks to networking and an article published in Forbes Magazine, I attracted some amazing mentors, joined multiple mastermind groups, and started several successful companies, such as Hartwood Capital LP, where we worked with private investment clients and experienced returns of 106% in our first year. 

As my network grew, so did my desire to help others. I started mentoring entrepreneurs and helping them develop. Seeing others grow, thrive, and become successful became my greatest calling and my greatest joy.

This resulted in the development of Make More Marbles, a company dedicated to helping entrepreneurs through messaging, mentorship, and masterminds, and Color More Lines, which helps companies with a cause grow on Amazon and beyond.

I enjoy staying active and have done both marathons and triathlons. I also enjoy supporting veterans and charities, including The Greatness Foundation and The Unstoppable Foundation.
