Believe it or not, the man who he is right now is quite different than the man who he used to be. People often see only the end result of many sacrificed hours behind closed doors learning, experimenting and failing. They see the confidence today, but not the hard times that were full of depression, rejection and absolutely no self-worth. 


So, let him tell you his story...


My journey began when I was 18 years old. I decided not to go to college because I didn't see how it would lead me to building a successful business (which was a dream of mine), so I withdrew from the four-year university that I was going to go to just two days before the start of the semester. I had no clue what the next step was, but I knew that not making the wrong decision was right.

Flash forward a few months, I found myself stuck in life. My girlfriend realized that I wasn't going anywhere in life so she broke up with me in a way that completely tore me apart, and there were family issues going on that caused me to get kicked out of my father’s house. I ended up sleeping on the floor in the loft at my grandparents house every night, which wasn’t too big of a deal to me at the time, but my grandfather ended up passing away which left the household a very sad environment. 


Now these aren’t things that nobody experiences, for we all go through ups and downs in life…. However, all of these events occurring at once led me to lose my confidence, self-respect and put me in a very low point mentally and emotionally. I felt like I was at complete rock bottom while everyone my age that I knew were living it up, building the foundations for their careers.

This is when I realized that I had nothing to lose, so I decided to move to California with just one thousand dollars in my pocket. I didn’t know anyone out there and had no clue how I was going to make money, but I told myself that I’d make it work.

I found an interest in creating digital content, so I started going to the beach with some friends that I had been meeting and I would go on little photoshoots with them. This is when I quickly developed a valuable skillset that would change my life forever.

A student housing company ended up noticing my work which allowed me to become their marketing director at just the age of 19 years old. They fired their 28 year old marketing director, who was "highly qualified" because of all of his degrees, and hired me, this 19 year old kid, as the full-time marketing director of this multimillion dollar company. Flash forward a little bit and here I was with my own office, managing the marketing for multiple student housing properties in Santa Barbara, CA, driving a luxurious BMW everyday, and living this life of "corporate world success" at such a young age. Pretty cool, right?

Wrong. Working for someone is not the key to happiness (at least for people like me) - knowing that you are changing the world and living life on your own terms is. I went from sleeping on the floor to becoming the marketing director of a multimillion dollar company, yet the only feeling I felt was shame. Shame, that as I was achieving this "success", I felt no sense of fulfillment... So one day I ran home, packed two bags, booked a one-way ticket to Hawaii, then had a friend drive me to LAX so I could then hop on my flight the next morning. The next day I moved into a house just steps from a private beach, and started my very first business.

After a few months, I realized that I had to get back to civilization. I decided to call one of my entrepreneur friends who told me about this place called "The Epic Entrepreneur House" in San Diego, CA. Instantly I fell in love with the concept, so I flew out to San Diego and I met successful entrepreneurs for the first time in my life. They taught me all that they knew about business and what it took to actually run a company.

Eventually my business really picked up and I no longer needed my base to be located in San Diego, so I decided to travel for a while and enjoy being a young digital entrepreneur. While I certainly enjoyed many adventures while being nomadic, I felt it was time to bring life to another vision of mine. A few entrepreneur friends and I decided to move into a place in Hollywood that would be great for creating content for our brands as well as what would be a fun place to call home. So we moved into a mansion in the hills and begun a new adventure that would turn out to be the most insane ride of my life (so far)…
