Cal was successful at a young age in finance as a trader on the floor of the American Stock Exchange. In 1998, Cal left Finance to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams and purchased a small special events company. From birthday parties and social affairs, Cal built NYFF Events into a leading events company serving national clients both domestically and internationally. NYFF brings an extensive inventory, skilled & technical know-how and a deep expertise in event executions to iDEKO clients. Cal has produced hundreds of events on a national level for almost 20 years, and has built an organization of successful event professionals including leading technical and production talent over that time. He counts many of the largest US companies as his clients.
Most recently, he was a founding partner and investor in www.allseated.com, a leading on-line event collaborative platform connecting thousands of event hosts, vendors and venues in the cloud. All Seated recently surpassed 10,000 events on its platform. Cal has also owned and sold a number of event venues in New York City, as well as a boutique marketing agency and a modeling/talent business.
