Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    After college, he wanted to buy a piece of art in his price range and couldn't find anything.

  • 2.

    Wondered why there wasn't a gallery for "the regular folks out there," so he started one.

  • 3.

    Saved his money from working in corporate marketing to start Austin Art Garage.

  • 4.

    Decided that he wanted money to be a side-product of his passion, not the main goal.

  • 5.

    Had a background in marketing, but wanted to create something that was so cool it marketed itself.

  • 6.

    His biggest inspiration is people telling him that something can't be done.

  • 7.

    Says, "I like to win and not lose, but I feel like it's failing from the get-go if you don't try."

  • 8.

    Trying and failing makes you stronger, he says; "I want to enjoy the journey, not the destination."
