Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Originally majored in chemical engineering, but says his technical side wasn't very "robust," and he failed out after one year.
Instead, he graduated from college with a degree in finance, but he didn't have a passion for the field.
While working as a valet, his sister gave him a pamphlet for design school, a path he'd never considered.
He'd always been a creative person, so he decided to go for it; enrolled in a design school.
As he was going through school, the popularity of the Web was just starting to take off.
He developed a website that centered on industrial design.
That site has since evolved into Coroflot.com and Core77.com; it's become his life's work.
Says that once you start diving into your interests, you'll encounter like-minded people and you'll start to see tons of new possibilities open up.
