I grew up in Philadelphia, PA. I attended UCLA on academic scholarship where I studied Economics and Accounting. Before college, I moved to Vancouver BC and worked with the Finance Minister. I then moved to California and continued to cultivate my interest in politics, international business, and frequent flier miles. I worked with the Finance Minister of Panama and elsewhere in Latin America. I owe much of my success in life to my mentor and my son's godfather. I sincerely believe that the adoption of plant-based expression platforms can provide an element of stability to the global economy while providing significant health benefit.
