After decades on the corporate farm as a shy, introverted engineer, he realized that the cubicle could no longer contain him. So, he escaped. It was a rocky road through entrepreneurship in the financial and gym industries until he finally stopped ignoring his genius. Now he plays in it, profitably, every day. When he’s not digging for business gold, he flies airplanes, brews beer, runs long-distance obstacle course races, and sets the bar low as a semi-professional comedian (not the funny kind!).
