Growing up, the concept of building something from the ground up was ingrained in me. My father was a remarkable entrepreneur, a man who turned dreams into reality, one brick at a time. He was one of the pillars behind Graniser Ceramic. What began as a modest venture producing 1 million square feet of porcelain tiles annually rapidly transformed into an industry powerhouse, scaling up to an astounding 200 million square feet within just five years. This environment shaped me, instilling a deep-seated belief in hard work and the pursuit of excellence.
After earning my business degree, I took my first steps into the family business, immersing myself in the vibrant world of exports. I focused on fostering relationships and expanding our reach in countries like Israel, Greece, Romania, Canada, and the USA. This role was more than a job; it was a global classroom that honed my skills and broadened my horizons.
In 2010, I embraced a new challenge, moving to the USA to take on the role of Import Manager. Here, I collaborated with industry giants such as Daltile, Tile Shop, Emser Tile, Eliane, Ceratec, and Floor and Decor, helping to create custom tiles that would find a place in many American homes. Our warehouse, a sprawling 50,000 sqft space, buzzed with activity, shipping truckloads of tiles that carried our legacy across states.
The entrepreneurial spirit within me yearned for more. In 2013, alongside a business partner, I co-founded Dulles Granite in Sterling, VA. This venture was a labor of love, a place where we brought visions to life, crafting countertops that became the pride of many homes. My journey didn’t stop there; I expanded with Fairfax Kitchen and Bath, a firm that quickly gained a reputation as one of the best remodeling firms in Fairfax, VA.
I find immense joy in the remodeling business. Seeing the smiles on our clients’ faces as we transform their old spaces into their dream homes is priceless. My business philosophy is simple yet profound, inspired by Robert Bosch: “I would rather lose money than trust.” This principle guides every project we undertake. We treat each home as if it were our own, working tirelessly with my team to deliver the best designs and results.
On the personal front, life has been a beautiful journey. Married in 2010, I am the proud father of a 12-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl, my sources of joy and inspiration. I enjoy swimming, playing volleyball, and exploring the world, experiences that add color and depth to my life.
Community service holds a special place in my heart. I serve as the treasurer at a non-profit private school in Chantilly, VA, a role that allows me to give back to the community and promote the importance of education. This value resonates deeply with me, as my father and his three brothers built a non-profit school in their hometown, a city with economic challenges. Their commitment to education and community development has been a guiding light in my life.
In addition to my remodeling ventures, I also own Full Stock Cabinets in Sterling, VA. We pride ourselves on importing high-quality cabinets in flat packs and assembling them right in our warehouse, ensuring that our clients receive the best in both design and durability.
As I continue to grow and expand my business, with the support of my brother who is the managing partner for our new showroom in Sterling, VA, I carry forward the legacy of innovation and community service that my father instilled in me. My story is one of dreams realized through dedication and hard work, a testament to what is possible when passion meets perseverance.
