GRATEFUL TO HELP
I am grateful for all of God's blessings upon me and my family.
I grew up in Mammoth Lakes, CA working summers on our family pack station and racing for Mammoth Mountain during the winter.
I became a ski instructor at 16 years old.
I was in Powder Magazine, Ski Magazine and Outdoor Magazine for extreme skiing doing various aerials.
I worked hard and played hard was and taught that I can do anything that I could believe in my heart by my late father Arnie Metcalf.
I learned to work hard from a young age and went on my own when I was 17 years old.
I have continued to work hard and treat other people with love and respect along the way.
I went to Saddleback College and then UCI to study computer science but I left in my 3rd year.
By God's grace, I was able to start four technology companies including TelWest, Sound Advantage, SpeechPhone and Voice Assist.
Three of my tech companies did extremely well and one was a total failure (in terms of financial reward); however, it was a huge success for ministry as I was able to lead over 300 people to a saving knowlege of Jesus Christ.
I was blessed to invent, patent and build the worlds first speech activated auto attendant system and later the first two-way handsfree texting application for mobile phones as well as other patents involving speech recognition and artificial intelligence.
Our team won 25 top industry awards and 5 product of the year awards eventually leading up to being listed in the Top 100 Technology, Entrepreneurs and Silicon Valley Historical Book.
I left the field of technology to attend Calvary Chapel Bible College in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.
I then went into ministry and became a bible teacher, Christian leader and volunteer to humbly serve people in the U.S. and abroad.
I joined the board at Safe Harbor International, the missions outreach and disaster relief organization of Calvary Chapel.
I few later I also helped another Pastor form Coastland Bible College.
I have continued to minister to everyone I meet and share God's amazing love, grace and mercy.
I have continued to help many small businesses travel the same road as I did before, helping to write business plans, recruit key executives and make critical capital introductions or help accelerate sales through over 12,000 contacts which I am blessed to know.
I later became an EVP of a private equity company and became a senior advisor to multiple family offices and PE firms.
I was instrumental in helping to package and fund over $1.5 Billion dollars in commercial real estate development.
I later formed my own fund called Developers Fund I LLC and later my second fund Developers Fund II LLC along with other people.
I remain active in managing these funds and making investments in commercial real estate development and other real estate transactions and sometimes in technology start ups as the opportunity arises.
I continue to serve in ministry at www.lifehopemercy.com and I am also a senior advisor and/or partner in multiple companies including Richmond Honan Development & Acquisitions, OMREAL LLC, Sound Management Services LLC and Wireless Pulse LLC.
My family and I recently moved to Alpharetta, Georgia to become more available to serve in ministry and to continue to fund medical office buildings, medical practices, medical technology and other assignments that catch my interest.
I am currently funding the conversion of office buildings into medical office buildings and building two technology companies focused on Software for Genetics and wearable medical devices along with a secure health cloud to store medical records.
If I can be of service to you in any way, please feel free to contact me.
