Tell us about your childhood and where you grew up?
I grew up in Southern California until the age of five prior to my nomadic journey introduced me to many geographies within the United States, including living abroad. This reality introduced me to people of all walks of life from different academic to social settings. I know how it is to be homeschooled, situated in public schools, Sunday School, and private institutions. Change has been a part of my existence since a young age. My parents always encouraged me to learn about the world through these transient experiences.
How did you get started as an entrepreneur? 
I never planned on becoming an entrepreneur. I was aware of its existence through peers in business school who were keen on starting their businesses following graduation. I never realized I had entrepreneurial qualities until life circumstances nudged me to consider creating my own entities through which I nurtured my professional development. I learned fast that professional development has a ceiling unless we also focus on our self-development. This is where business meets spirituality. I’ve been engaged in business endeavors that expand across a broad portfolio of interests from media & entertainment to fashion. I started working at a young age within the arts and academic sector that evolved into sports management and beyond. Life doesn’t start after you discover your passion. Live your best life by exploring opportunities that can introduce you to your passion. As a pragmatic personality, remain hungry to learn more and don’t expect things to happen for you. I don’t believe in luck. Develop a respectable work ethic and care to become a better person. The harder you’ll work, the more luck you’ll create. Entrepreneurship has to do with hosting a greater purpose than yourself. It’s less about vanity and more about designing a reality through ideas that serve society. Either you’re the problem or the solution in life.
What is one business lesson you would tell a startup founder? 
Be mindful of the business sources you rely on for guidance. It’s your resources and you’re accountable for it. I only accept business advice from personalities hosting a strong business acumen with proven performance in past and current financial sales. I value people who have taken risks, gotten their ass kicked, and THEN they’ve managed to come back stronger to the playing field.
