Eric Kane, in 2006 Stacy and I got engaged and decided to move to Arizona from Illinois. We moved to Tucson, AZ for 8 months and transferred to Yuma, AZ where I met a real estate investor and first became interested in investing. He was also the first to introduce me to Rich Dad Poor Dad and other real estate gurus. In 2009 from Tucson we transferred to Grand Junction, CO where I started working for an oil field service company about 8 months after moving there. After natural gas prices fell off we transferred to Cheyenne, WY in the winter of 2014. Two years in the north pole was enough for us and we moved back south to Fort Worth, TX in Jan of 2016. Eric joined forces with Tang in 2018 and The Odd Brothers was born. Now they run a successful Investment Firm with a team of 7 in the US and 8 in the Philippines
