My road in life has taken me all over.
I was diagnosed as “mentally retarded” at a young age due to the fact that I was extremely dyslexic and could hardly read.
In seventh grade, I spent the whole summer working through the original Hooked on Phonics programs.
At 13 years old, my cousin and me left home and traveled to the British Virgin Islands to become bartenders—this wild experience taught me about how the real world actually works.
Attended Colorado College, where I received my bachelor’s degree in business and psychology.
I began my career working for venture capitalists and even founded a start-up which I eventually sold—decided to attend MIT, where I earned a master’s degree in management.
For the next 20 years, I worked in the telecommunications industry, helping to build 25 companies in 12 different countries.
I pivoted and began guest lecturing at Colorado State University, which led to me teaching MBA classes, assisting in the school's economic development, and creating their online university.
I was recruited by Harvard to modernize their Division of Continuing Education—for the past six years, I've grown their online programs to include 600+ classes serving over 30,000 students.
Keep following my journey
