I love working hard and building exciting things. Right now I'm putting all my time and effort into LaxAllStars.com.
Describe what you have done, what you are doing, and the kinds of things you are interested in.
As a recent college grad, I survived the financial crisis of 2008 in New York City by teaching myself how to program, trusting in data-driven decision making, soaking up everything I could from my mentors, and finding a passion for telling stories through new media and film. I was laid off, then hired by the same company the next day. I was recruited by employers for my sports marketing prowess. Soon I realized I could start my own media company revolving around my favorite sport, serving a very underserved, but promising fan community.
I did the above while unknowingly suffering from a degenerative back disease called ankylosing spondylitis. Pain began after college as I sat in a cubicle all day. But truth be told, looking back, symptoms flared as early as my freshman year. When I was finally diagnosed in 2010, what I needed for my own well-being started to become clear. Fast forward three years, and I couldn't be in a better place. If that's not an achievement, I don't know what is!
