From Banker to work for dad's import-export business on Long Island in the lawn & garden and hardware industry for about a year or so and then became the National Sales Manager for a British company just getting started in the North American market that was in the DIY hardware industry. Did that for about 4 years and then attempted to help a German horticultural company get established in the US market with a peat bog they started in New Brunswick, Canada. Did that for a couple of years and then decided to become a manufacturer's rep in the same industries. Built a rep organization, one of the first to sell and service The Home Depots and other big box stores covering Maine down to Virginia. By the time i left in 1999, we had 100 service reps on the road covering all the Home Depots from Maine to Virginia with just over 40 different product lines in each store. Burnt out, got a divorce and decided to change careers. Joined Weichert Realtors for a few years originally to be a sales agent, but quickly became the go to for designing the presentations for the agents to get customers, both for sale and to purchase. Left that to buy Creative Desktop in Brookfield, CT; a graphic design company and worked that up to about 4 years ago, changing the name to Creative Group LLC and converting it into a music promotion business. As a self taught graphic designer and picking up a keyboard in 1999 to start to write and compose my own music, found my true passion was music. Never looked back. Actually wrote my vows into a song when i remarried in 2006 which was our first dance. Decided to pay it forward and fill a void in the music industry that was missing in supporting the independent music artists and started TBAIMS in January of 2013 holding the first seven monthly showcases at the Gibson Guitar Studios on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan. Have since moved it to Toshi's Living Room.
