In 1989, he started his own development company.

Inspired by his father and brother, both home builders, he developed and built multiple residential communities throughout Orange and San Diego Counties between 1989 and 2002. He then tried his hand at hotel ownership in Las Vegas. For 18 years he was the owner-operator of a 225-room Hotel property in the bustling area between the Strip and the LV Convention Center.
