To do my best to make the world a better place.
Born to two business savvy parents, my father, Owner of Zulanas Distributors LLC, and my mother, an Investment Officer/Trade Desk/Operations Manager at a company bought out by J.P. Morgan and Chase, I was raised to learn professionalism from a very young age. Despite his schedule, my dad managed to coach every sport I played through grade school. Time management and hard work were the cultural foundations in my household. My parents, keen on providing me with every educational opportunity possible, enrolled me in four sports a year, religious education, five to eight summer camps, and supplemental reading/writing/math education starting at age six. From my parents, I learned hard work, competition, and tenacity.
Employed at age 12, my first job was rolling, packing and delivering 300 newspapers every Friday evening, and this job extended through high school into my first week at college. After some initial coaxing from my mom, I became an intern journalist for this same newspaper when I was 16, having my first article red-lined during 3 separate drafts before it was finally published. After the initial success, I wrote 20 published articles for the newspaper and became a paid journalist by the time I went to college. At 17, I started a blog called “The Groupies Unite” providing over 50 instructional manuals for party games. School and professional pursuits focused my writing career on finance, education, grant writing, construction, philosophy, organizational design, innovation, and organizational change management. I am really passionate towards the creative arts and share this passion with my wife.
