Shortly after arrival, he found his first job with the Leslie Controls Company in Parsippany, New Jersey. There he grew and learned in his many roles as a dedicated employee. However, his passion for entrepreneurship led him to take a leap of faith and start his own taxi business until his health drove him into retirement.
