From rags to riches, he was born and raised as an orphan who was determined to become completely independent. He later built an empire out of Newman Enterprises. He came to Genoa City with his wife Julia to help Katherine Chancellor to run her business. While her husband was at work, Julia looked for a job, ending up as a model for photographer Michael Scott, who became attracted to her.
