He went from one subscriber working out of his old bedroom having his mom as the secretary, they sold one new customer in July that year ending up the next year in 1999 as a top 100 dealer in the United States for Dish network.
Since then his team has continued to grow and expand and was rated in the top three of all Dish dealers in 2018. As part of the expansion and services, he built teams that started wiring new homes for cable then internet, to include home entertainment.
