I started my first business in February 1999, it was successful, then failed. I went through the painful process of starting a “dotcom” in 1999, raising a million dollars, achieving rapid growth, then losing it all when the economic bottom fell out to learn important lessons and set me on a new path. From that point on, I was different, and built my businesses differently. I learned how to build around profit and scalability while never sacrificing being a Dad, husband and living a full balanced life. I busted the MYTH that success only comes from crazing hours, and sacrificing relationships and health.
I started my second business in November 2002, it's called Red Giant and grew it into the largest developer of special effects tools for TV and films. I ran that company for 13 years, during which I never worked more than 35 hours a week. In 2015 I hired an amazing team to run the business which released me into my next venture. I have since started four more companies, did a fair amount of angel investing and a lot of small business and non-profit consulting.
