Employee Bio

Born and raised in New York, Moved my senior year and finished High School in Spring Hill, FL.  I didn’t plan on going to college but wanted to pursue a career in music instead. But with Spring Hill, FL barely being listed on the map of Florida, there aren’t many places for employment to sustain living on your own so I decided to go to Community College where I received my Associates Degree. While in college I opened my own sunglass distribution business where I was supplying wholesale sunglasses and eventually readers into many local and out of state businesses. I sold my business after college to go full force with my music career, but my friend and collaborator in music passed away, shortly after, at the age of 27 due to a cancer growing in his throat. I changed my vision, although grieving, and focused my future on my career in business and to grow my family, which I am now a proud father of a beautiful baby girl.

  1. Water

Men's Liberty is changing our patient's lives on a daily basis. Each day I am helping the medical community give options that they did not believe existed before I called their office.

Hello everyone! Today we are starting a new series of posts that will run over the next couple of months. As it was my idea to run this series, I feel it is only right that I feature myself first. I am also probably one of the newest members to the BioDerm/Men's Liberty team, so this gives me a chance to better introduce myself.

This series of posts is an attempt to give our patients, healthcare providers, and caregivers a better idea of the people behind the Men's Liberty product. Often times our customers only know the name of their customer service representative and dont really know much about the voice on the other end of the phone. Not anymore! This series is sure to give you a better insight into the people that make this company so great and it may even yield a few suprises....
