He has also served as a Senior Business Banker, Equities Portfolio Manager, and a Co-Founder and Executive at a boutique CMBS portfolio securitization firm, where he managed a portfolio of over $500 Million in AUM. Earlier in his career, he was a Financial Advisor for Morgan Stanley.
At the age of 19, John started his first business as a Founder and Entrepreneur, which he sold at a profit to pay for college. He enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and helping entrepreneurs achieve success.
