If you are an entrepreneur, what motivated you to start your own business?

Self-employed, and why….FREEDOM! Time freedom and mental freedom. I want to make things, and I need the freedom to do that.

What does success mean to you?

Providing solutions and making those solutions accessible to those who need it. All that while having rich relationships with the people closest to you.

What is your mantra or favorite saying? (If it's a known quote, please let us know who said it first!)

Action Creates Clarity

What failure taught you the most about life or business? What was the lesson?

Failure is data. It gives you information of what you need to try next time.

What's your favorite book - fiction or non-fiction! - in the past year?

The War of Art (Steven Pressfield)

If you could teach the world one five-minute lesson, what would it be?

EMPATHY. I think empathy would solve 90% of our problems. It’s not a weakness…its a basass strength.

Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently when you were first starting out?

Ask myself more intentionally “what problem are you solving”. I didnt really understand “value” and the importance of it being defined clearly when trying to grow something.

What would you tell 19-year-old YOU?


What will 86-year-old you want you to know TODAY?

Play more, have more fun, and spend more time with the people you love. Oh, laugh.

Does anyone call you by a nickname? What is it?

No! But I wish I had one…can someone call me something?

Congrats! You just met a Genie in a Bottle. You get three wishes. One can be worth $0-100, one is worth $100,000, and one is worth $100 million. What are your wishes?

($0-100 wish) Mexican Restaurant gift card…lets go! ($100k wish) Invest in or start a media company that highlights creative, heart-centered leaders ($100 million wish) Creative solution to the foster care crisis…

What is your favorite quote? (It can be yours or from someone that you look up to.)
