I'm a 17-year-old from the suburbs of Los Angeles, California and I'm obsessed with achieving success.
Just a few years ago, I was a top student aiming to go to one of the top 30 universities in the US. In my Freshman year of high school, I injured myself by following the typical high school advice to do everything. After months of seeing doctors and failing to find a solution, I eventually had to leave my high school. My life trajectory seemed ruined.
I was dragged through alternative school after alternative school all while struggling to handle the constant pain my injury gave me. I eventually decided to veer off the path entirely. Since then, I've been working on creating opportunities for myself and learning the secrets to success.
I began networking with people I admire, I started a consulting business, and I've been reading lots of books. I'm currently running a business to help web designers find the clients of their dreams and am learning digital strategy in the hopes of eventually joining a firm. Hire me?
I blog irregularly here.
I muse about life and philosophy on Ello.
I show my work on Tumblr.

August 2011 - October 2014
After being in and out of my local high school and trying out every alternative school under the sun, I finally graduated with a certificate of proficiency from the state of California.
Personal Development Blogger • September 2013 - December 2014
Within the first months of starting to blog, I attracted thousands of visitors a month to my articles on personal development and self-improvement. I later quit because blogging well is a full-time job, and not the job I was hoping to pursue. The best posts from the blog are archived here and still attract new subscribers daily.
Outreach Consultant • August 2014 - Present
To dip my toes into the world of marketing and business, I handle the brands of freelance web designers. I help them find the clients of their dreams by branding them as a niche leader and creating marketing campaigns that target clients directly.
I'm rapidly expanding my skillset through reading, side projects, and experimentation. Here's a list of the skills I have under my belt right now:
