A typical day in my life includes…

I wake up at 5:30 a.m., stretch, take a deep breath, and take time to appreciate the day before it starts. I then head out to visit local businesses to introduce the Gift3r App marketing solution. Then, dinner is prepared and I enjoy the rest of the night by catching up on conversation and watching a movie with my lady.

I was born…

on the small island of Cyprus in Europe.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the sunny weather and dry heat.

I am listening to…

Dr. Joe Dispenza.

My family…

is my power source for joy and happiness.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Jim Carrey.

One thing I cannot live without…

chocolate.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an entrepreneur.

I am inspired by…

people who unconditionally offer their time to help someone in need without being asked, just because they can and have the desire to do so!

The one person who motivates me is…

my mother!

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

eliminate fear and self-doubt.

The perfect day would be…

warm, sunny weather, great company and great food paired with a few glasses of vino. We’d finish the night having fireside intellectual conversations.

My first job was…

at the age of 12, selling foam sprays and masks at the Cyprus Carnival! Lots of fun!

My favorite escape…

time alone!

My life…

is simply joyful.

I am currently working on…

Gift3r App, a digital gift card registry from favorite local businesses. Local businesses struggle to sell gift cards in a cost-effective and efficient ways. They cannot sell their gift cards into local grocery stores, which is a huge revenue opportunity. Consumers do not have an easy way to know ahead of time what their friends and loved ones want when they celebrate. Gift3r App lets businesses sell their gift cards on our platform and consumers can now buy a gift card for a friend from a favorite local place they know they will support and love.

Always…

stay positive, no matter the amount of pain you are going through!

Never…

allow a negative response or answer to stop you from moving forward.

Favorite Quote…

I like to say, “Feel it, till you make it…don’t just fake it!”

Biggest Dream…

is to be able to create a product that can spark social impact and empower people to share instant joy among their friends, family, and community, in just three clicks.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

are people who are only able to focus on and talk about the negative and ugly side of things.

More about Taso…

I have been in the restaurant industry for the last fourteen years. Personally, I value relationship building, good food, and better people. I believe that time spent eating well with great friends is a necessity for a healthy lifestyle. I wanted to create Gift3r App to provide a better service to our customers at my restaurant. People never know what their friends want for gifts unless they are getting married and are having an Amazon/Target registry list. With Gift3r App, friends and family can share instant moments of joy in just a few clicks from anywhere, while supporting local businesses. By utilizing our app, local businesses can increase revenue, grow their brand, and serve their customers more efficiently, while saving on plastic.
