I was raised in a time where people had to become doctors, lawyers, or teachers because that’s what worked for my parents who lived in a world where working for someone else meant stability and security. I don’t blame them for wanting these things for me, but realistically, I wasn’t passionate about any of them. I loved art and sports, you know, cool stuff. Regardless, I chose the "safe" path that was teaching, and let's be honest, that the doctor/lawyer ship sailed long ago. I spent a decade teaching in various countries around the world, which was a great experience. I made great friends, experienced different cultures, and learned a heck of a lot about education. Still, something was always missing. One day, a friend asked me to help design a website for their side hustle. It was like a light switch turned on, and all of a sudden I had a platform to unleash my creative side, which had long since laid dormant inside of me. I started making more websites for friends, and even for the schools I was working in. Then one day, somebody asked me how much I charged for one… For some reason, it hadn’t occurred to me that this was even a thing. Fast forward to a few years later, and I had officially retired from teaching in lieu making professional websites for people. I was finally in a place where I felt fulfilled, and I could help others get that same feeling. Yet, this was only the beginning. I figured that there was no reason these small businesses I was working with, couldn’t achieve the professional polished presence that brands like Nike or Apple had, so I made it my mission to learn about what made those companies so successful, in order to share the knowledge, the perspective, and most importantly the process, with my clients. I developed a knack for being able to see things others couldn't, and to help them see it too, and I use that to help them become the best version of themselves.
