I have always considered my creative accomplishments to only represent half of my professional persona. My entrepreneurial focus, built off my degree in Business Management, has been the foundation for immersing myself into all types of business environments. In a start-up environment you don’t always have the luxury of hiring experts in every required area of focus. It often falls upon a few to become knowledgeable in marketing, sales , production, budgeting, projections, and leadership just to name but a few. I have had the opportunity to do just that. Additionally I have also had the opportunity to face challenges and failures. As any good entrepreneur will admit – you will learn more from one failure than ten success’. I proudly classify myself as the individual who is just as comfortable in a jeans and t-shirt creative environment as I am wearing a suit and sitting at a boardroom table. Here are some of my business success to highlight:
- Co-founded a company (FashInvest) that was acquired by the largest trade journal in the Fashion
- Currently sit as Chairman of the Board for the Macy’s Philadelphia Fashion Incubator
- Part of a two-man team that
handled the due diligence for Daymond John for the ABC Show Shark Tank.
