Michael Vasquez

I am Michael Vasquez, exploring a better vision for the New York 22nd Congressional District.



Who is Michael Vasquez?



Born in 1968 in the Bronx, NY, Michael Vasquez is a single African American Puerto Rican. The oldest in a family of 6 children, Mr. Vasquez went to high school at Evander Childs HS and then attended the New Brunswick, New Jersey campus of Rutgers University.

While attending college he joined the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. His course of studies in college included Philosophy, English and Chemistry. Mr. Vasquez also took the opportunity to create his first company - imported consumer fashion accessories (hand-bags, ponchos, sweatshirts, silver earrings, ect.) run with 2 other classmates. Upon leaving Rutgers University, Mr. Vasquez went to Moscow, Russia where he was a director for an international import/export company.

During the time in Russia, Mr. Vasquez lived in Moscow, Riga, and Tbilisi during which he experiencing the attempted coup of the Soviet government and the Soviet Georgian civil war. It was during these turbulent times that Mr. Vasquez learned first-hand the daily impact of Communist socialism on the lives of average citizens and the extreme differences life in America provides.

Once returned to the U.S. Mr. Vasquez went to Los Angeles to join a start-up theatrical film production company and experienced the L.A. riots as well as the Northridge Earthquake. Again, this experience provided insight into the differences that exist even in America; and how if left unchecked and unaddressed these forces can erupt into chaos.

Michael, a motorcycle enthusiast, was injured by a hit-and-run driver, resulting in the rod and pins in his left leg that remain to this day, and returned to New York City. At this time he pursued a career in the U.S. securities markets. Mr. Vasquez enjoyed a nearly decade long career as a successful securities account executive (stockbroker), never receiving a complaint nor lawsuit. In 2002, Mr. Vasquez joined a fellow former stockbroker in establishing an investor relations company that continues today. As part of the work in investor relations, Michael had explored the growing world of the blogosphere.

This lead to the creation, management and improvement of over 150 blogs and websites. This knowledge has been sharpened with years of actual hands on experience. The culmination of this experience was the creation of VASS - political commentary in November of 2005 and Black Entertainment USA in December 2005. M V Consulting, Inc. was formally founded in August of 2006.

Mr. Vass continues to expand this Company, incorporating all of his experiences and knowledge as well as imbuing personal aspirations in each venture. Even so, the "Great Recession" took its toll on these entrepreneurial ventures. Like 1.3 million other self-employed small business owners, Mr. Vasquez was forced to seek out full-time employment in addition to his passion for the company he created. Currently, Mr. Vasquez is a fully licensed auto and home insurance agent, working in the Binghamton area for a national insurance organization.
