Full bio

guess you could say my story begins as a child. While others played with boardgames, I was constructing my own. I grew up with a fascination in the creative aspects of life, the idea of innovation. Since as long as I can remember I viewed the world in a slightly different perspective then most. I tried to dismantle the existing system, find its weakness, and exploit it. Whether this is to be considered a gift or not I will never know, but throughout my life people have noticed this difference. Even at the strangest moments people have mentioned that I possesses a drive that distinguishes me from anyone. With this repetitive observation I have always felt that I had large shoes to fill. For the first time in my life I see where my success lies and have realized that my current corporate situation only stifles my potential. I have always had an entrepreneur spirit and desire to dictate my own future. The formation of Gadingo Inc. with my childhood friend has created a confidence that cannot be ignored. The best business ideas emerge out of problems we face first hand. Gadingo meshes my passion for entertainment events, the spirit of innovation, and the ability to create a lucrative business through a solution I've discovered.
