How I got into the skin care industry: I am very fair-skinned. At age 28, I got chicken pox. By age 30, my skin was red and peely and had tons of discoloration from the chicken pox. My skin appeared really red and ruddy.
Several years later, in my 30’s, I ran into a guy named Dr. Bird while I was playing golf. He handed me this tube of goo, and he said he was using it in his practice to treat the skin of his patients. I figured I would try it.
Several months later, I swear, my friends thought I had laser surgery. I had picture perfect porcelain skin like they had never seen. Well, it turns out it was the base amino acid formula that we had, that would ultimately become AminoGenesis.
Favorite AminoGenesis Product: Cocoon All-Over Body Treatment ($44.00, AminoGenesi
Unique fact about me: I used to be a young aspiring baseball player. Played in the minor leagues with the Oakland A’s.
Quote to live by: “If you keep hustling, good things will always happen.” Also, stay focused on why you are doing this. Never forget why you are doing what you are doing. In high school, I had a great coach and motivator who never cut me any slack. His philosophy was always – if you keep hustling, something good will always happen. I always apply that, all the time, no matter how things may look. I can’t tell you how many times I repeat that to myself.
