Ambitious serial entrepreneur, writer, author & photographer pursuing a creative, boundless career path...

I live by my personal mantra:

"Choose your own path. Own your chosen path."

At 15 I hacked high school creating a unique curriculum through an accredited alternative learning program, a co-op, college courses and various extracurricular activities including public speaking and snowboarding clubs, dance and music lessons, achieving the well-rounded education I envisioned.

And that was just the beginning...
