I am a successful real estate owner, stocks and commodities trader. This is also what my mother and father dedicated their careers to, as well as my grandfather and great grandfather. I am honored to be continuing the business that my family has been involved in for over 100 years.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a businessman for me is the ability to help and provide a needed service to people. As a devoted Christian, religion plays a major part in the way I conduct my business. Treating my clients with respect and adhering to ethical business practices has always been my guiding principle, and a large part of my career success.
Family is the most important thing to me. When I think about the happiest moments in my life, they always involve my family. My wife Beata is truly my best friend. Her love and support is what motivates me to excel and be a better version of myself with each new day. We’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters Eve who is three years old and Beatrice who is one. Today, we live in a family-friendly community in sunny South Florida.
In my often-busy schedule, the moments I cherish the most are spent with my family. For me, it’s about the little things: picking my girls up from school, playing sports with them, reading to them at bedtime. During the week, our down-time is usually spent relaxing after a busy workday, playing with the kids and having dinner together.
We spend our weekends like most families, reading stories to our kids, taking them to the playground, taking them swimming. Watching my daughters play together makes me so happy. No matter how stressful my work week has been, spending the weekend with my family always makes me feel re-energized.
Our Sundays start with church. My wife and I are Roman Catholic, and faith remains central to everything we do as a family. It is important for both of us to pass down our Christian values and our devotion to God to our children. We are trying to raise them with faith, kindness and service to others.
I truly love my family, and I know that they will always be there for me and I will always do the same for them.

I started my public service career as a field officer for the Republican Party of Florida. During the 2016 presidential election, I personally knocked on at least 10,000 doors, and made thousands of phone calls, speaking with people and registering numerous voters.
In 2017 I won a three-candidate election for secretary of the Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) in Florida. I love my current role because it allows me to be more active within the party and advocate on behalf of my community. My political views are crystal clear: I advocate for smaller government and lower taxes. And as a Christian, I also believe that all humans, including the unborn children, have a right to life.
In Everything I Do I Believe In:
I consider family to be a person’s most precious gift. Family is the key to community, peace and solidarity among people because it teaches us how to love and commit our lives to one another.
To me faith isn’t just a notion that some people hold onto in tough times - it lies at the core of everything I do. My faith informs the way I conduct my business and treat other people.
Community service is an important part of my life. For me, giving back to the community is not a hobby but a full-time commitment. And I don’t do it for the accolades – I do it because this is what I believe in.

In 2014 I joined The Knights of Columbus, the world's largest Catholic fraternal organization that provides financial aid and assistance to members and their families. Since then, I have been very closely involved with the organization and its charitable projects that encompass a variety of local, national and international initiatives.
I call my role in The Knights of Columbus my passion because it is extremely important to me both on a personal and spiritual levels. It gives me tremendous joy to have the opportunity to work together with fellow Knights and their families who share similar values. In 2016 alone, The Knights of Columbus volunteered more than 75 million hours of service working with national charities, such as Habitat for Humanity, as well as local Food for Families and Coats for Kids projects.
Growing up, the virtues of philanthropy have been instilled in me since the very early age. Giving back to my community makes me feel like I serve my purpose and set a good example for my children. But more importantly, it is simply a Christian thing to do.
