About Me

I am an accredited investor and I primarily invest in restaurants. I also invest in other types of businesses and serve on boards. I typically participate as either a lead investor or as a co-investor with a group. Prior to investing in restaurants, my passion was creating unique Restaurant concepts. I have founded and co-founded 8 successful restaurants over the past 30 years in California, Hawaii, Florida and Virginia.

I am proud of the fact that restaurant concepts I created over 30 years ago are still thriving and being enjoyed by guests to this day. I’m also proud that restaurants I created have served millions of guests over the years – including 5 U.S. Presidents.

In addition to restaurants, I have founded two Information Technology companies – one selected by Microsoft® for a joint-venture partnership, and another backed by U.S. and European Venture Capitalists and selected for a partnership with AOL-Time Warner® before being acquired.
