” Find what you love to do and you’ll never have worked a day in your life.”
None of these factories would have been possible without the support of the following:
- Don Pablo Frias of Teri’s Cigars in Santa Ana, California (My mentor)
- From Don Pablo I met some of the most important people in the Tobacco Industry that would ensure my future.
- The Olivia Family of Olivia Tobacco
- Savino Portello of Pureleaf Tobacco
- David Perez of A.S.P. Tobacco
They kept me going even through the Cigar boom of the 90s with great tobacco.
