CTFO Independent Associate
I'm originally from San Diego but after 45 years in southern California, my wife and I decided to sell a business I created and move to Maryland in 2018.
I've been married since 2003 and together my wife Kim and I have four beautiful daughters, and they keep us very, very busy!
After I graduated from Long Beach State University, I entered "corporate America" for a large Fortune 500 company - and quickly progressed upward. After a few years I knew I was more of an entrepreneur than a worker bee. I struck out on my own in 2002 and have since owned and sold multiple business. From starting a Network Marketing company, building an Amazon FBA business, to retail stores and consulting, I've done it all. I also left behind a very successful insurance brokerage business in San Diego (still getting residuals!). So I've always loved building businesses and teaching others how to do this for themselves as well.
I have over 25 years of sales and marketing experience and even sold Cutco knives in college way back in 1994 (Vector Marketing). I'm knowledgeable in SEO, building wordpress websites, sales funnels, private branding, product design and launching businesses. I've started businesses that reached over $8MM in annual sales, have created and launched over 75 different private label products across 8 different brands and have hired and trained hundreds of employees, independent contractors and temps over the years.
Since 2010, I've watched the CBD industry blossom and I knew I wanted to be involved, so in 2018 I started CBD.ceo and partnered with CTFO.
I'm a converted Ravens fan (after the Chargers moved to LA), but still love my Padres! Our family enjoys going on trips, hanging out with our friends, fishing, beach days and having as much fun as possible.
