My career began in 1997 providing technology management consulting services to multiple Fortune 500 organizations. Pfizer, JP Morgan, Citibank, AIG and GE Capital are among my former clients.
Career wise, I was doing very well but something what was missing was a sense of fulfillment. I felt that my unique skills weren’t being used to their fullest and that my passions weren’t unleashed. My journey into social networking began in 2001 after September 11th where I realized the value of connection seeing how community aware people could become after a tragedy. I had gone from building capital in my finances to building social capital with my relationships. I became a man on a mission with a hunger to make a difference in the world.
Since 2003, I’ve immersed myself in all aspects of Internet Marketing and lead generation, after founding an event planning company called Metrofly with the purpose of creating unique “fun-raisers” for various charities in New York as well as connecting people together for philanthropic causes.
As being someone committed to constant improvement, I have been personally mentored by several of the world’s foremost marketing authorities and business strategists including Jay Abraham, Michael Gerber, Media Expert Joel Roberts, Sales Conversion expert Lisa Sasevich, Sales Trainer Blair Singer, Online PR Expert Marc Harty and countless online Marketing authorities including Alex Mandossian, Eben Pagan, Armand Morin. As a Copy-writer, I have studied with two of the forefront leaders in that area John Carlton and David Garfinkle.
I have been involved in multiple 5 and 6 figure Internet Marketing product launches as both an affiliate marketer and as a JV Broker. I have organized 140+ high impact events and workshops and have managed behind the room sales funnels for Peak Potentials, Michael Gerber, Tony Robbins and others in many cases grossing over $1 Million in sales per event.
My purpose in life is to inspire others to find their voice as leaders. As such, I am trained as a business coach, workshop facilitator and leadership trainer through the National Speakers Association Academy, Toastmasters International, Peak Potentials and Landmark Education. I have head coached the Self Expression Leadership Program at Landmark Education. I’ve also worked with top Peak Performance coach Anthony Robbins and Getting Things Done productivity expert David Allen. I currently co-organize the largest monthly leadership and personal development Meetup in New York called the NY Powerteam. http://meetup.com/NYPowerTeam
Many see me as a thought leader in the area of Peer Accountability as I have held entrepreneurs accountable since 2005 through the peer-to-peer accountability community Peer Success Circles where members are paired together with consistent daily huddle calls, while we track their goals. In 2015, we launched the Mastermind community PeerMomentum, a virtual 90 day incubator where members support each other to drive forward to their goals. The tagline for PeerMomentum is, Momentum Inspires Momentum.
I’m happily married to an amazingly beautiful and brilliant woman who encourages me to be my best. I’m also a proud father to our baby girl Jasmine.
