Goofy, driven, playful, serious, competitive, driven (did I already say that?), they all explain me to some extent. I’m a hard working man with my hand in a lot of things. I like people who like people, I have a corny sense of humor, and I’m quite talkative. Being outgoing and mostly “good crazy” has helped my career in astonishing ways. I still don’t know how I get away with being so much me, and being successful at the same time.
One thing is for sure, I’m glad I don’t have to spend my life “faking it” for my career’s sake- that probably wouldn’t be much fun. I see it all too often at conferences and events, and I just don’t understand why people do it. Loosen up people, you only live once!
Emotion fuels me, but it’s mostly logic that drives me. I wear my heart on my sleeve, but I generally keep my emotions in check. This is a delicate balance, which I think helps me connect with people rather easily… and connecting with people has helped me in more ways than I can list.
For some reason I still think I am much younger than I am, and probably always will. Even though I’m nearing my 30′s, I still act like a kid. Some might even think I need to “grow up” some, but my daughter sure loves it. Plus, I think the type of people who think I should probably take myself more seriously tend to be an unhappy, persnickety bunch. This may be a broad over-generalization, but it seems those types of people don’t like seeing others live like I do.. so I don’t need to tone anything down for their sake. They’ll only take everyone around me down into the depressing hole of “taking yourself too serious”. I’m busy trying to keep everybody up!
Staying “forever young” seems to help in most facets in life and even makes a few aspects a challenge, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I try to enjoy each moment in my life as much as possible. Those who know me understand that something as small as a lunch break with me could end up being a full throttle life experience if I see an opportunity. I live for reasons to make even simple things memorable.
In all, life is good. I love my family, friends, co-workers, and my job, and my companies. In general- I’m pretty driven to succeed in life. Just call me your average 29 year old suburban chumpin’ web geek. I have less of a wild streak than I used to, but I still got enough of that “good crazy” so I’m not typical or boring.
I spent years being a high performing corporate VP douche until recently. Now, I am purely 100% a web entrepreneur. I still take clients for my Arizona web design company, MCP Media while creating numerous new web projects for myself.
Oh yeah, and I’m in a joke band who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent :)
The biggest aspect of me is that I absolutely love my daughter. She’s the sweetest, girliest girl ever. The stuff I do to make her happy is perfect ammo for my friends to make fun of me. How many of you can say you had 2nd row seats to Disney on Ice, the Princess Parade? Not many I presume!
On Saturday night I try to cut loose and hang out with my friends, which often involves beer and / or mostly unhealthy food. My friends are the best :)
If you’re interested in learning more about me, or if your business needs some serious lead gen / branding / ranking / optimization / sales / design / development / etc. Contact me. I love meeting people. I honestly think every person I meet presents many opportunities for personal growth and / or success, most of which are initially unseen. It’s hard not to be a “people person” when you think like that :-)
