I realized I would be an entrepreneur for life at the age of 14 when I discovered you could make thousands of dollars selling hip-hop beats to rappers over the Internet. I was hooked and I have never really stopped.
Now 10 years later, I have personally generated $40,000+ through multiple lean small businesses, collaborated with executives at multiple venture-backed tech startups and public companies, launched a viral YouTube channel with 1M+ views, produced multiple high-profile events and hackathons around the World in partnership with Fortune 500's, and designed, coded, and shipped multiple mobile apps and websites.
My collaborators think of me as a creative hustler who finds ways to hack problems as well as a strong product thinker capable of quickly blueprinting new companies and products.
My mission is to bring at least one truly great product to market success in my lifetime, with an emphasis on making a material improvement to areas like education, empathy, mental health, creativity, and productivity.
My studies nowadays are around the brain and machine learning, where the World is today and where it can go, and the art of leading teams of talented professionals to build something great.
