About Me

To summarize my life in a single phrase, it would be: transforming obstacles into opportunities. Before becoming a successful CEO of several award-winning and profitable companies, I started just like everyone else -- at the bottom. Never a stranger to hard work, I toiled as a NYC garbage man, with no college degree, hustling to pay the bills. After losing many loved ones in series of tragic events, I took stock of my life and future. Young and determined, I took the first steps.

At 22, I opened a pizzeria. Through sweat, blood and tears, I learned what it took to run my own business. Fast forward 19 years: I am very Happy. The journey to this point has been long and winding, with successful businesses in multiple industries. Each endeavor was an opportunity to learn, evolve, inspire and lead, and to forge meaningful, long-lasting partnerships and friendships.

• The Hustle: My first foray into the tax business was at SmartServ. I started part-time (I was a full-time garbage man), but quickly grew my staff, crushed targets, and exceeded industry expectations.
• A Client’s Words, Not Mine: One of my clients called me “The Problem Solver.” The name stuck ever since.
• Your Success is My Success: Throughout my career, I’ve coached partners to effectively navigate challenging business circumstances and achieve their goals.
• Energetic & Innovative: I'm helping others launch new businesses based on my experience with a unique combination of both customer service savvy and serious tax business knowledge chops.

THE FUTURE: In 2014, I launched an exciting new model in the tax business: Happy Tax. My partners and I collectively bring over 100 years entrepreneurial experience to the table. Our innovative and patent pending business model offers a compelling combination of exceptional customer experiences and immaculate tax expertise.
