My journey as a creative entrepreneur started in 2006 when I was working for an architectural firm as a project manager. I had a good job, but it wasn’t a great job.
I taught myself how to use WordPress and was the first person to sell premium WordPress themes. I revolutionized the market. In my first month, I made $10,000, which grew to $20,000, $40,000, and $80,000 the following months.
Some days I feel as though it was pure happenstance—that it was merely a stroke of luck and I was in the right place at the right time. Other days, I embrace the fact that I was smart enough to seize the opportunity which presented itself.
Either way, here I am, and here you are.
In the summer of 2018, WP Engine acquired StudioPress. It was the right move at the right time with the right partner. I have no regrets, as it opened the door for something I have dreamt about for years.
I co-founded Agent Engine. We power digital spaces for real estate organizations and provide stylish profile management for associations, brokerages, or teams of any size.
I simplified my life, which brought clarity and allowed me to focus on things that matter. I created No Sidebar—a collaborative blog dedicated to intentional living.
Life is precious, and the quality of it matters. We tend to allow the noise and distraction into our work, and we end up with canvases that are cluttered. As creators, the environment we surround ourselves in can heavily impact the art we produce—and quite honestly, it should.
I believe in the power of simplicity and create things that look good, function with purpose, and get people excited.
I am pleased to introduce a new project I created: Frost.
