Hi – welcome to deviate. 

If you know me, you know that I am always up for trying new things. My path in life has included many pivots, backtracks, recalculations, and sprints.

When I was a kid, I thought I was going to be a professional athlete. I was never able to solely focus on one sport because I was always wondering “well what if that’s not the right sport for me?” So I became average at a bunch of sports.

This set the stage for anything else I tried to do in life:

I started my career switching between contracts with the military and waitressing at local restaurants while studying full time in marketing. I learned two of my most valuable skills during that period:

  1. Time management – a.k.a. compartmentalizing so I don’t explode
  2. Stakeholder management – a.k.a taking sh*t for no reason

Since then, my life has gone something like this:

My life


This site is designed to lay it all out there based on my experiences and inspire anyone who fells the urge to take on the opportunity to deviating from their plan.

Needless to say, this site is still in progress…
