I’ve always been an individual with a philanthropist head and heart serving people wherever and however I can. By taking the seat of serving people, it gives me an objective perspective of their pain and suffering. This allows me to be able to effectively communicate and provide solutions to their dilemmas.
I believe giving is better than receiving. The choice to give is a choice to create a life for yourself that is filled with content. I believe a person’s quality of life best described as what he leaves behind. We all have the chance to do what we can to help others, simply by giving when we have.
I can be satisfied by knowing that I have done my best to assist those who are not as fortunate as I am.
If you receive wisdom that has helped you through hard times, you can make the wisdom twice as strong by simply giving it to another person.

A Few Things That I Have Done In My Life!
I came to the United States in 1993 with $475 in my pocket, a gym bag with some belongings, and not knowing a word of English. I found a job as a dishwasher in a neighborhood pizza place. From there I moved up to cook, delivery driver, and finally to Store Manager before opening my own restaurant in 2000. Under my leadership, Piccolo Italian Restaurant became a thriving upscale eatery in Austin Texas, even during the recession that followed the dot.com bust and attacks of September 11.
After five good years, I sold my restaurant to give Corporate America a try. I worked as Chief Operating Officer for Carey International, and then as a corporate consultant in service, management, and sales for Jack In The Box, Bennigan’s, and Blockbuster Corporation. Now serving as CEO at OpticTour Google Trusted Agency.
During my consulting career, I learned a lot and saw the effects of the “tunnel vision” – corporations tend to focus more on the bottom line than on the people who are managing it. By neglecting their lower-level employees, many large businesses miss out on the wellspring of potential that exists within each individual.
There is a story behind every person.
Many years later, the place I now call home has blessed me with working with amazing people. I feel a sense of honored duty to help others to achieve the happiness I feel every day.
