I redirected my primary focus and energy from playing college basketball to entrepreneurship in 2006. I took a leap of faith and left my comfort zone in Pittsburgh, Pa and moved to Orlando, Fl. While attending the University of Central Florida (UCF) I co-founded two businesses, one focused on real estate (lease purchase program) and the other a SaaS product (GroupTable – collaboration software – think Trello before Trello) that we grew to 10,000 users. To date I am the only UCF student to ever win the UCF Joust Business Plan Competition twice (earning nearly $20,000 in college to fund my ventures). After graduating in 2008, I started a marketing agency that I grew to several million in sales while using extra capacity and profits to make my own investments in my tech and real estate ventures.
Since 2018 my focus has been on helping to fund real estate projects and early stage companies. I am deeply involved in the Opportunity Zones program (enacted by Congress in December of 2017). I have learned a lot through my entrepreneurial journey since arriving in Central Florida in 2006. Below is highlight of my experience and achievements. More to come.
