Q: Who & why was The Journey Awards created?

A: The dream of establishing a meaningful awards ceremony did not come easy for this once homeless, humble & determined man. He tells stories of unbearable days of starvation, cold nights and constantly working in excess of 20 hours a day. Stories which are definitely not for the fainthearted. A Journey that could have broken him down, instead it turned into resolve to pursue his dreams. After opening several hospitality based businesses and hosting large events, he would always make sure he gave back.

In 2015 after watching several award shows, he noticed that there was no ceremony out there that could match the same Hollywood glitz & glam experience but also have a meaningful result. A ceremony that honors VIPs as well as the average person who inspires & help millions. After reaching out to a group of selfless, diverse philanthropists.. The Journey Awards was born:)
