Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Originally majored in chemical engineering, but says his technical side wasn't very "robust," and he failed out after one year.

  • 2.

    Instead, he graduated from college with a degree in finance, but he didn't have a passion for the field.

  • 3.

    While working as a valet, his sister gave him a pamphlet for design school, a path he'd never considered.

  • 4.

    He'd always been a creative person, so he decided to go for it; enrolled in a design school.

  • 5.

    As he was going through school, the popularity of the Web was just starting to take off.

  • 6.

    He developed a website that centered on industrial design.

  • 7.

    That site has since evolved into and; it's become his life's work.

  • 8.

    Says that once you start diving into your interests, you'll encounter like-minded people and you'll start to see tons of new possibilities open up.
