I grew up as a skateboarding punk. During my high school career, I became more technically inclined, taking to Television Production and DJing. Music became the focus and I sought to grow my knowledge and collection exponentially. After High School, I attended Valencia Community College in 2001 and began working for Sam Goody/Musicland. By 2003, I had eventually landed employment at my favorite independent record store, The Drop Shop. There I expanded my network and began broadcasting music under the name Future Flavaz. These efforts quickly morphed into a show production stint in the Orlando area booking a number of acclaimed DJs. This effort finally evolved into a full-fledged music label project entitled 'The Prestige Music Group'. Finally I graduated from The University of Central Florida in '07 with a BA in Entrepreneurial Management. During this time I said farewell to music retail, and went on to start another business. I began investing in real estate, by purchasing, renovating and leasing an investment property in the Orlando area. Eventually I decided to relocate to sunny Los Angeles CA in 2009, where I was employed with The Hundreds is Huge Inc. as the Online Sales Manager for this leading apparel brand. I was gainfully employed with the company for nearly 9 years and learned a great deal as a fashion industry professional. As of July 2017, I have resigned from this position and embarked yet again for greener pastures. After a few months of travel, I've relocated to the beautiful state of Oregon. Here I've assumed the position of Operations Manager for the leading cannabis retailer. La Mota is on course to dominate the industry, and I've learned much under their employ. Of course the goal is to start a lucrative business for myself some day, so I must venture onward to follow my heart. Guess we'll just have to see what happens!
