|I am originally from the State of Rhode Island where I attended Bishop Hendricken High School then graduated from Cranston High School East. In 1994 I moved to Florida to attend the University of Tampa where I majored in Entrepreneurship and interned for United States Senator Bob Graham (D-FL). I then attended the University of Miami(FL) from 1996-1997. From there I took 1 semester at the Florida State University in 1997. I then settled at the University of Southern California majoring in Finance with a minor in Political Science.
I graduated in December of 2000. In January of 2001 I started South Beach Entertainment and opened Club Envy at USC to rave reviews and massive press which propelled me into the Los Angeles nightlife scene. I took 2 corporate jobs within 2001 but left rather fast as I knew I was too talented to waste my tiime and energy in corporate (robotic) America (Pepsi Bottling Group & Newell Rubbermaid Corporations).
In January 2002 I started the Union Marketing Group and invited both Larry Castruita and Jesse Caetano to be my managing partner. From 2002 to 2005 we took the Hollywood nightlife scene by storm and threw every hot A-list party in he city. We also were major event/party planner and succeeded in brand marketing.
I split from the Union Marketing Group amicably in 2005 to pursue a career in mortgage banking. I started as a loan officer at South Bay Funding in 2005 under the tutelage of Michael Talasaz where I was the #1 salesperson. This forever changed my life as I found my true calling as a premier salesman. In January of 2006, in search of a higher commission split I joined Cyrus Nikou at International Funding Solutions and was #2 in that company in sales. Later that year I took an offer I couldn’t refuse to manage Platinum Capital Group. Here I managed teams of 20+ loan officers. I then left Platinum to pursue my own company and signed on as a net branch of Apex Mortgage where I was until 2007.
In 2007 I started my own firm International Funding Solutions where I held mortgage broker licenses in over 35 states. After the market crash in 2008/2009, I decided to get into loss mitigation.
In 2009, I started Mitigation Online Consutants, an immensely successful loss mitigation firm until I officially retired from the mortgage industry in June of 2009.
In June of 2009, I started Spray Tan Los Angeles, AKA Spray Tan L.A.www.spraytanla.com. I invented our own 100% certified organic solutions and a private labeled skin care product line. We make our own machinery and tents. Spray Tan L.A. has tanned most of Los Angeles and the celebrity clientele that comes with. In 2011 Spray Tan L.A. became the innovator in wholesale worldwide distribution of organic spray tanning machines, solutions, products, tents, and training.
I have lived in Cranston, RI; Philadelphia, PA; Tampa, FL; Miami Beach, FL; Coral Springs, FL; Tallahassee, FL; Los Angeles, CA; West Hollywood, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Houston, TX, & St. Thomas, VI.
I am currently single with no children and live with my 2 miniature pinschers Tanner and Tillman.
My family resides in RI, NV, PA, & FL.
