Landing Your Dream Internship: I believe that anyone can land their dream career. This eBook tactically explores how to land an internship no matter what your experience. The best part, you can sign-up download it for free when it’s launched here.

Journal: I like to write things. Check them out here.

YouTube: Sometimes, I’m too lazy too read. I know you all feel the same. That’s why I also put stuff on YouTube. From reviewing affordable adventure gear, interviews with average people doing incredible things, learning new things, and the occasional how-to. You can find them here.

Current Work:

Moonlit FurnitureMoonlit is built off the thesis that furniture today isn’t designed for the modern transient professional. We design affordable, beautiful, and sustainable furniture designed for the modern professional. Come check it out.
