I grew up in Detroit, the oldest son of a fireman and a rollerskating teacher. I lived a curious life trying to figure out how things worked.

I’ve been lucky to always have jobs doing things I loved including selling magic tricks, performing yo-yo tricks, DJing parties, Photography, Motion Graphics, 3D Animation, Software Development, Design, Blogger, and Educator.

Today, I make software and training to help make the world easier and more fun. I work and live in the Midwest where I go on road trips, drink craft beer, play pinball, and listen to a lot of podcasts.

Below you can watch my favorite talk I’ve ever given about how I transitioned from a 9-5 job to building my own business.
