I am a(n):


If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

I want to change the world, touch other people's lives in a meaningful way, and to help others achieve their dreams.

My favorite startups:

PayPal and Google

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

There's not enough time in the day.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make?

Unable to take counsel from others.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

To be successful, an entrepreneur needs to maintain a healthy mind, body, and spirit. Without a sharp mind, I am a fool. Without a healthy body, I am a sloth. Without a strong spirit, then I am untrustworthy and without passion.

Who do you worship?

I worship and serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For I can only serve one master and place no value in idols. In order to be successful in life and business, individuals in an organization need to be strong in mind, body, and spirit. Without God in the equation, many companies fall because of a weak spirit leading to lack of integrity. To be solid in mind, body, and spirit, individuals and the organizations they form thrive.

What books have you written?

My first book is titled: "Hooked on Games - The Lure and Cost of Video Game and Internet Addiction." "Hooked on Games" provides insight into the minds of hardcore gamers, helping us understand how and why gamers are lured to and trapped within the digital world of video games and the Internet. This book outlines methods on how to escape the addiction and to start on the path of recovery. "Hooked on Games" will be released in June 2012. Website:

My second book is titled "The Biggest 24: Harnessing Your Full Potential in the Digital Age." What is “The biggest 24”? Twenty-four, of course, is the twenty-four hour day. The biggest twenty-four is the most impactful, most meaningful twenty-four hours a person can live. Every twenty-four hours is twenty-four units of potential. What would your life look like if you lived every day as the biggest twenty-four of your life? In essence, what if you lived your life like it was the last twenty-four? "The Biggest 24 is scheduled for release in 2013-2014. Website:
