My entrepreneurial and business-minded journey got started fairly early compared to most. When I was just 6 or 7, I was knocking on doors to sell popcorn. Shortly thereafter, I set up a table in my parents from yard to sell lemonade and Pokemon cards to passing cars - few people needed what I was selling but respected the hustle enough to do an exchange.
Fishing, surfing, and music have always been a huge part of my life so it didn't take long after high school to start the first venture that peaked those interests - Tails Casual Outfitters was put together in 2014. What started as an idea between a couple friends quickly turned into my playground into the world of online marketing. Shortly after learning about Facebook advertising, WearTails.com had over 750 college applicants to be brand reps and orders for thousands of dollars of sunglasses, watches, and shirts.

Being a jack of all trades is often-times frowned upon. I think that's how people become deadly weapons. Successful entreprenuers surround themselves with those who meet their shortcomings, but the true game-changers are first capable of all the jobs they outsource. Here's the list of my top skills:
Like my father, mother, and brother before me I attended Florida State University, studying real estate & entrepreneurship during the Jameis Winston era and graduating in 2017.
After college, I back packed Europe for 40 days with my girlfriend and then was accepted to study disruptive strategy at Harvard Business School Online which I decided not to attend to pursue real world experience.
