I constantly seek out daily opportunities to learn and grow. I have dedicated my life to creating social impact movements while using business as a force of good. I welcome any opportunity to improve my capacity for doing good on this planet.
Please enclose a short personal biography.
I played in a rock band until, at 21, a near death car accident left me bed ridden for a month. During that time I uncovered my calling and blurred end in mind to be a strategy guy. It took me some time to figure out my true DNA (default natural advantage), but once i did, i did everything I could to create my own opportunities to strategically increase my capacity for short-term & long-term fulfilment.
At 23 I started creating social good companies with the purpose to get paid in experience. Over time I created a system to Strategize the S#!t Out of anything that mattered to me. By 25 I was VP of Marketing for a multimillion dollar company. By 26 I was the Vice President of that company and automated it to the point that the CEO, David Katz, no longer needed to show up to the office.
By 29 I intentionally automated myself out of that company and, with David Katz, co-founded The Plastic Bank, a triple bottom line social enterprise that makes plastic waste a currency in developing countries to help reduce global poverty. I coined the term Social Plastic ® and created the brand strategies to launch a Social Plastic movement that gained almost a million Facebook fans and well over 250 media features before expanding globally. By 31 (This year) I signed onto my first equity stake Board of Advisors position with HeroX, an official spin off of the XPRIZE.
