Get To Know
I wanted to do this "Get to Know" section so you can..well...get to know me. So you can put a face to the profiles and information and see that I am just a regular guy chasing his passions.
I'm one of those laid back, go with the flow type personalities. I try not to stress over little things and I don't usually have a plan for my personal every day activities. If I think of an idea I like to just go with it, if it works it works, if it doesn't it doesn't. I believe "failures" are only learning experiences and being negative in your thoughts will get you no where. It took a long time for me get into that thought process and it has happened over my life but the quicker you can adapt the right mindsets that work for you the better off you will be, in my opinion.
I recently moved the Orlando, Florida area at the end of 2017 and so far I love this place. We used to travel here to race motocross when I was growing up and I have just always enjoyed Florida. It's kind of surreal to be living down here now. My wife is originally from Germany so she hated winters and cold weather and I had had just about enough of winters too so, Florida sounded like a great place to go!
Not to mention this area of the state is prime location for motocross, cycling and just outdoor activities. I feel more in my element here as opposed to the hustle and bustle feeling of the D.C. Metro area. The daily commutes and constant traffic was really starting to affect my moods and reshaping my personality which I was not okay with. I used to love going on drives, I used to go out and cruise around just to be in traffic and busy-ness. But, it had gotten to the point where I didn't even want to go across town because of the hassle. Even though I had gotten to a place where I was only about a mile from work, I felt like I was having to shrink my world in order to be sane.
Honestly, I hated school. Maybe it was my experiences from high school, etc..but I really only went to school because I had too. When thinking about graduating from High School I never felt like, "Damn..I can't wait to go to college!" I didn't see the point and I really didn't want to go into debt for something like school.
Well, fast forward to several years after highschool. I was starting to get pretty into visual effects and other creative outlets so I ended up attending Gnomon School of Visual Effects for a brief period. I sort of lost the direction I had in regards to the classes I needed so I stopped attending.
Moving forward a little more and I moved onto Full Sail University to then graduate with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Internet Marketing. After school, sitting and thinking of what to do next (surprise right)....I wanted to be able to help small businesses with social media and online work in general.
I came to this because I had done the whole small business thing aside from M81 apart from just having the desire to help others who might be struggling with the overwhelming amount of stuff needed for a small business. The idea of being able to help others, exercise my knowledge, and be able to hone my craft and my skills just seemed like the right direction for me, so I went for it.

Actual Common Questions
It's not hard at all. Which is why I hate it! If I could have just a little more facial hair than say..Michael Cera..that would be fantastic.
Yes....but only a little...
I don't know why I get this question a lot but it seems to be happening a lot more lately. But I digress, Absolutely not.
Little green men? No. Others out there whom are smarter and more advanced than us, definitely. It's statistically impossible for us to be the only beings in this universe and thinking that we are...is pretty naive.
Dang, you made it through the get to know me section! Haha, seriously, if you have made it this far down, that is awesome. I really appreciate you taking the time to read through here and get to know me a little more. There's obviously a ton more but this is a web page, you can't put every little detail. Can you? I'll be posting a lot of thoughts and stuff over on the blog so please feel free to check that out. Also, if you have any questions, comments or just want to say what's up please feel free to do so!
