There is no single title that can identify who I am or what I do.

I like it that way.

I graduated with a degree in civil engineering a few years back and am now working towards obtaining my engineering license. I could say that I have a day job where I draw lines on a screen and put numbers in spreadsheets... or I can say that I improve the transportation experience in Nevada by making our roads safer, smoother and more attractive.

I'll choose the latter.

While I've had creative projects my entire life, it was only a few years ago that I realized that these fulfilling experiences could reach more people and be profitable. It started with writing my first novel, Gold Stars, in 2009. Many have enjoyed it including my parents and their children.

In 2011 I chased another dream of wanting to become an inventor. The OggBoard was born and within weeks of its conception was featured on sites like CNET and Kotaku who declared it would change mobile gaming. All of that buzz lead to a failed Kickstarter launch in 2011 and an even more epic Kickstarter fail in 2012 after myself and a team took it from conception to reality. It was an amazing experience and I would do it all over again in a second.

I also have a few niche websites including Easy Journaling and Semi Pro Engineering where I am establishing myself as an authority in really obscure topics. It's a bunch of fun though and allows my creativity to continue untamed. Podcasts, ebooks and newsletters are just a few of the ways that I reach out to people in these niches.

My future projects include potentially, well... anything actually.

I am motivated by life, inspired by oxygen and thrilled by waking up in the morning. The worlds most
