AboutPart of my mission in life is to help other people. I truly believe that giving back is key to living a happy and fulfilling life. Along with real estate, I have another business I started called riseOMA, Omaha’s premier networking experience, which hosts exclusive, invite-only events with the city’s top entrepreneurs, influencers, creators, artists, designers, etc. You can expect to network with top talent, explore local vendor booths, and get advice and inspiration from incredible guest speakers. We all know that networking is important in any business venture. It’s all about who you know and who knows you. I also do community organizing. In 2020, during the nation’s racial unrest, I had a last-minute idea to put together a peaceful protest in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. We asked men of color to dress up in their best suits and march peacefully through downtown Omaha. In just five days—and after creating tons of marketing materials and blasting them on social media—we organized a crowd of several hundred who also brought canned goods and cash donations for local charities. The march, which we called “Black Lives Matter Food Drive and Unity Walk,” was even covered on our local news station.
