Previous to Sabil USA, for 15 years he served on the boards of Access CA, CAIR, and as President of ICOI. He experienced board fatigue until he came to a Sabil USA food distribution for the underprivileged . During that distribution, an elderly client kept praying for him for giving her $20 worth of groceries and carrying it to her car.

I realized her prayers were priceless compared to what I gave her and it grabbed my heart. 

He knew at that moment this is how he wanted to serve the community: through Sabil USA. He now serves as Vice President of Sabil USA and in his free time loves to golf and spend time with his family.
