My road in life has been direct.
I was raised by a single mother and learned early on that I had to work for anything I wanted.
I started mowing lawns to earn money and then learned to manage others mowing lawns for me.
That lawn mowing business eventually grew into a landscape construction company.
I learned about Bitcoin from my youngest son and started mining with him shortly after.
I quickly realized that Bitcoin was about infrastructure, power, scalability, and systems and procedures—things that I had centered my career around previously.
We moved from New Orleans, Louisiana, to Texas with the goal of developing a large-scale data center—in doing so, we realized we were helping to repair and reenergize the town’s industry.
Riot Blockchain acquired Whinstone, the data center, effectively bolstering our development as we built it into the largest Bitcoin mining facility in North America.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

Buy a machine, plug it into your house, and start mining. You can get a used machine for a more affordable cost. I also go to a Bitcoin meetup in Houston, Texas. I recommend joining a meetup like that in a major city near you to get connected.
