About Me

Just finished a 2 year around the world trip and now I have a business based in the USA and a solar company in Ghana and Kenya that focuses on helping people in rural areas start their own solar energy company by providing energy and WiFi.

ABOUT ME

I'm very easy going. Love to travel, and learn about new cultures. Love to do business in multiple countries. I enjoy playing basketball, photography salsa, and capoeira. I have a travel blog for young professionals called www.ypjetset.com

In the last 3 years, I have lived in London, New York, and Frankfurt. Best decision I ever made was to leave New York and expand my horizons.

PHILOSOPHY

Do what you have to do now so that you can do what you want to do later.

"A man must travel. By his own, not through stories, pictures, books or TV. He's got to travel by himself, with his eyes and feet, to understand what is his. A man must travel to places that he does not know to break this arrogance that makes us see the world as we imagine it, and not simply as it is or can be. That makes us teachers and doctors of what we have not seen when we should be students, and simply go see."
