I have been in & around the Internet since 1997 at several start-ups, a few successful and a few not worth mentioning. 3 partners and I started Zengine, Inc. in 1998 and took the company public on Nasdaq in the heart of the technology boom later selling the company in 2001. After chasing a lifelong dream of playing professional golf for a few years throughout Florida and east coast pro & amateur mini-tours, we built custom homes in Las Vegas while working on select Internet consulting projects. Carpeturn.com began in June 2010 leveraging Internet technology to simplify flooring installation, replacement and repair for the apartment industry.
From an immigrant background like most Americans, my family arrived around WWI from Sicily on my father's side and my grandmother fled from Latvia with my then young mother during WWII. They came to this country seeking the better life that America promised. I carry their spirit and honor the family members who came before me by giving my best in anything that I do as I believe if it's worth doing then it's worth doing to the best of your ability. My immediate family resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where my 3 sisters and brother run their own businesses and have blessed us with 3 nephews and 2 nieces.
