Full bio

Having been part of several small business start-ups, I experienced firsthand the pain that each one of us endures in the upbringing of a small business. With all that I have learned from my past experiences and with the realization that the backbone of our economy is truly the small businesses, I pledged to both myself and my colleagues that I would make a positive impact in the realm of small business ownership.
