A little about me...
I Love to Help People.
I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in the late 80s. Most of my childhood seemed like a struggle… from getting my arm nearly bitten off by a Great Dane, to getting hit by a car and saving my mom’s life after she attempted suicide. I believe that continuous states of extreme discomfort will either define the person you don’t want to become or if you choose, it can define the person that you need to become. In 2017, I got bit by a tick and contracted Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF). It inhibited my productivity ten-fold and even while my ambition to continue building my business was high, I could not physically work on the computer for a consistent period of time.

To quote TheologyDegrees.org, christian apologetics is a field of Christian theology aimed at serving as a form of defense against certain objections that may be brought up against it. The defenses that christian apologetics use for the faith are largely based in evidential and historical reasoning.
Despite the struggle, I have always believed that God has guided me. I believe Jesus Christ came to this earth to save us and I defend Christianity (from the personal, non-religious perspective). And part of the foundation for my belief is grounded in Duncan’s argument that states:
Christ either  deceived mankind by conscious fraud, or  He was Himself deluded and self-deceived, or  He was Divine. There is no getting out of this trilemma. It is inexorable.
Scottish Christian preacher “Rabbi” John Duncan (1796-1870) in Colloquia Peripatetica (p. 109)
My wife, better half and best friend and I have been married since 2016 and she has been pivotal to my growth. It takes a lot to be a successful CEO and entrepreneur and although I’m not willing to share her, her advice and knowledge in natural health helped me to overcome RMSF. She was also my main support system while working through my mom’s depression.
I have always had a passion for the arts and I love to express my creativity through photography, Photoshop artwork and crafty projects like building a DeadMau5 head. I shoot mostly candid, nature photography or unique artistic shots. I like to evoke a sense of adventure with my photos. I have been using Photoshop for over 15 years. I have worked in and now oversee productions, web design, user experience development, and graphic design.
I keep some of my portfolio on Flickr and I am selling prints as well. If you are interested in purchasing a print, please contact me via email@example.com.
My first creative endeavor was actually building fireworks when I was really young. My mom, who let me safely experiment, would buy me grocery store fireworks and I would take them apart, test how different powders and chemicals reacted to flame, and reconstruct the fireworks in new containers. The last firework I made years later was a multi-stage show with a remote detonator.
While I was in high school, I took a tech vocational class of Web Design & Multimedia. My teacher would always tell me to work out of the book, but I would continue to work off of tutorials and innovate with out-of-the-box ideas. Not to steal from Apple, but this is where I first started to think differently.
I got a job at RadioShack, started a side business fixing computers, designing flash animations and building websites for friends and family. I moved to Orlando to get a job at a media agency and worked odd jobs within the company until they would let me into the media department. I was applying for 9 months for a web designer role and finally was hired on as an Assistant Producer, even though I didn’t know how to shoot. I told the CEO, “I’ve never used a camera professionally but I’ll learn.”
Just before I got the job, I started building my first company, Invenst LLC. It was designed to help people with ideas create companies. It was going to combine inventors, freelancers and eventually investors.
In 2014, I created the company Cressio, a partnership and we created GreenSuppliesOnline, a drop-shipping website for vaporizers and ecigs. While I wasn’t super interested in the idea, it was a trending product and I was essentially the CTO on the project. We built an automated supplier communication tool that emailed the appropriate suppliers when their products were purchased. We would purchase a shipping label, generate a packing slip and email it to the corresponding party, all automated in less than 5 seconds. It was a great success and we sold the company after two years of solid growth to an Australian crypto investor.
In 2017, I reincorporated Invenst to Invenst Labs LLC in Delaware and drafted plans to take the company to new heights. We spun out the original idea for Invenst to Gignext. Since my background was in marketing and advertising, I have skill sets in graphic design, video production, photography, marketing strategy, and web design to sell under my umbrella. But all the while, I was really passionate about creating unique operational infrastructures.
I dropped out of college while pursuing a degree for video production because on one hand, I was getting more real work experience and ahead of my class and on the other, our Lead Producer and mentor advised me that with two letters of recommendation from himself and our Creative Director, I could likely get a job anywhere that the degree would take me.
After a dozen trips to the library, hundreds of hours of research and planning, I crafted a business model that will succeed, regardless of the industry. It has four foundational pillars of success: Culture, Value, Innovation & Operations. I created the third iteration of the famous Business Model Canvas, second to the Lean Model Canvas, called the Lean Agile Model for Business which is a shortcut Idea Validator for individuals looking to start businesses or existing corporations to discover improvements.
I created Invenst Labs with the dream that the future of work is freelance. I believe that within each of us is a passion for something GREAT and when we remove money as the motivator, we identify the things others wait their whole life to chase. My mission is to embolden like-minded individuals to excel at life, break free from societal standards and combine areas of expertise with one another ultimately to create a better world. I’m a Christian apologetic, husband and avid learner. I choose side hustles and partners as they align to my passions.
