Accomplishments: Founding and growing The DSM Group, a marketing firm; managing daily operations and conducting media strategy and negotiations; volunteering with the recreation department in Wyckoff, his hometown, among other charitable activities.

Super Power: Mindreading.

Best Business Advice: "Shut up and listen to the people around you. It's something I try to practice every day, because you tend to pick up a lot of great insights and information from others."

Most Influential Role Model: "My mother, Lucille Magarro. My dad passed away when I was 18 and in the first semester of college ... Her example is why I am where I am today. She worked multiple jobs and struggled for a lot of years after my dad's passing to make sure I had everything I needed to get through college and finish my degree."

With $1 Million to Donate, You Would Support: Companion Animal Advocates, which keeps family pets out of already crowded shelters, and Eva's Village, which feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, treats the addicted and provides free medical and dental care to the poor.
