My passions lie in two distinct areas: tacos and startups.
I am the Community Manager and one of the founders of Hub101, a startup incubator and coworking space located in Westlake Village, California with a mission of encouraging businesses to “create, launch, grow.”
As a Startup Weekend global mentor and organizer, I was able to interact with and learn from the innovative minds behind startups worldwide.
In 2011, the Pacific Coast Business Times selected me as one of the top 40 up-and-coming business leaders in the tri-county area.
In 2015, I mentored over 100 different startups in France and London.
In 2016, I received a 40 Under 40 award from the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce as well as Congressional recognition of my efforts in supporting our local startup community.
In 2017, I joined the City of Thousand Oaks Business Roundtable. I am also a speaker and Cofounder of one of the nation's leading business formations company, MyLLC.com.
