Welcome! This site was created to provide my friends, family and business partners with a gateway to the things I am passionate about.
I feel very fortunate to be living what I consider a very successful life. I have wonderful friends and family that always seem to support me in just about everything I do. The joy I take from being married to my wife and having a beautiful boy just cannot be described in words. I take great pride in having such a wonderful family and I love them very much!
I am also extremely grateful that my parents instilled in me a very strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit. I enjoy working, and take great satisfaction from my business ventures. Over my lifetime I have been lucky to build my career around the things that I enjoy, such as electronics, real estate and construction.
Working with people has always been a pleasure for me. If you can provide value to those within your ever-widening circle, and have fun doing it, you can foster wonderful relationships that will last a lifetime.
Just being alive is a gift! I take pleasure in the small things so the big things will be that much more rewarding. Life is too short to take every moment serious.
Take a look around at my site and feel free to contact me with any comments or questions.
Life is good!
If you want to be truly successful in life, learn to solve problems. The more and the larger the problems you learn to solve, the more successful you will be and sometimes those problems are our own struggles and disabilities.
