I am pleased to announce that I have been named to D CEO’s 2019 edition of the Dallas 500, which celebrates the most influential business leaders in North Texas. It’s an honor to be recognized for the second year in a row among those who are helping Dallas realize its full potential. Dallas provides an immense opportunity for business professionals—from young entrepreneurs to industry-leading executives—and is raising the bar for the rest of the country.

I am proud of the path I have forged to reach my current level of success. Since founding Worldwide Express in 1995, the company has reached $1.8 billion in sales and is the largest company of its kind. I have the pleasure of sitting on the advisory boards of TEDx, XPRIZE and AFI and have executive produced several films, including Undying; Blue Line; Three Days in August; Occupy, Texas and Signs of Humanity.

As a resident of Dallas for over three decades, I attribute much of my success to its generous community. Being in the company of bright, forward-thinking professionals gives me the inspiration to continue seeking out new ventures and encouraging others to do the same. I firmly believe any individual with a passion for business and the determination to follow through has every opportunity to be successful here, especially as Dallas continues to expand. I’m eager to provide the same support to others that has been graciously provided to me.
