I grew up in Long Island, New York. At 21 years old, I had my associate’s degree, and I was working in a deli. Most of my friends were putting their time in at blue-collar jobs, and I just figured there had to be more to life than making sandwiches. So, I called up my aunt and uncle in Southern California and went to live with them while I found my feet out West. It was really a great change for me. I finished up my bachelor’s degree and worked a couple of jobs in SoCal. After working in the tech world and in the aftermath of the Dot-com bubble burst, I was looking to make a change. What I wanted more than anything was to add some value to the world. I got my real estate license in 2003. Today, I aim to live a more conscious life. I believe that we should be continually evolving and changing, and I am always striving to better myself and to help others. When I’m not preoccupied by real estate, you can find me growing vegetables in my garden—or cooking them in my kitchen. I’ve also started spending time refurbishing a 1972 VW Bug convertible. I would love to lend my knowledge and experience in real estate toward helping you go someplace, too.
