Florian or what he is more commonly known as "FLO" is an Asian Immigrant, Veteran, Entrepreneur and Business Mentor. Flo immigrated from the Philippines when he was around 10 years old. He's from a single-mother household that struggled financially. Flo did not have the means to attend college so he enlisted in the Air Force right out of high school. He later attended the US Air Force Academy and served 21 years in the Air Force's Nuclear, Space, and Cyber Warfare operations. After his military retirement, he had a short 3-year stint as a defense contractor for NORAD/USNORTHCOM and US Space Force before becoming a full time business owner and entrepreneur.

Flo has multiple businesses ranging from real estate investing, IT/telecommunications services, educational tutoring franchise called Huntington Learning Center, and his latest acquisition, Power Media Group which owns KPPF radio station and the Power Talk 1040 news/talk format. His goal is to provide the local community the best value / lower cost access to traditional media platforms for branding, advertising, and promotions of their causes. In 2022, Flo partnered with Mountain Radio Group that is operating three radio stations, three radio formats: new/talk, country and classic rock, and eight transmitters with an area covering 2.1 million people from Southern Denver to Pueblo.

Flo is on the board of several nonprofits ranging from the Rampart Chapter of the US Air Force Academy Association of Graduates, Vice President of the board for Eastlake High School, and senior advisor for the Golden Lotus Foundation. The Golden Lotus Foundation has recently partnered with Colorado Springs to build an Asian Heritage Center, Chinese Tea House, and Asian botanical gardens on one of its parks (1819 W Cheyenne Rd, Broadmoor area, 80906). Flo is heading the planning and development of the entire project with Golden Lotus Foundation's founder Cynthia Aki.
