After completing his apprenticeship, he went on his way and started a gem wholesale business. He and his partner grew the business quickly and worked directly with miners and importers. They specialized in high end gems and uncut minerals. From 2010-2014, he worked as a Market Analyst and Trader for a small finance group in Richmond, VA. Managing risk and finding for opportunities in led him back to real estate.

He enjoys getting to know a businesses and their projections to help them with their real estate needs.
