My road in life has been direct.
As a kid, he always had a vision of sitting behind a desk at his own company; this kicked off a lifelong love of entrepreneurship.
At age 9, he organized a street carnival on his block with some inspiration from a Jerry Lewis telethon.
At age 10, he learned computer programming and started making his own video games, then started studying machine language.
He's always been open to opportunities to build new skills-his openness gave him faith in the Web, while all of his peers were writing it off as a "fad."
By 25, he'd started his own computer company, and by 31, he'd sold it for millions and was off to find his next adventure.
He moved to Los Angeles and tried to enjoy his success, but he still felt unsatisfied.
Realized his ultimate satisfaction would come from using his software development skills for the greater good-this led to him starting Causecast.
