“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

I will make magic.

I was once a professional entertainer, performing magic for nearly a decade. That's when I fell in love with that look – it's the look on someone’s face, when for a split second, they think that the world might not be as they know it. They wonder if what they had always known to be impossible is actually quite possible. I first pursued magic as an 11 year old. I was enamored by coins appearing out of nothing but thin air. I was naïve, but I found it empowering to even just imagine that the constraints of the physical world didn't apply to me. And it was freeing – even if it was only pretend.

I hope now to do this in an even bigger way. I want to build products and experiences that create that same feeling of disbelief. It's the moment of astonishment – the instant when you realize that something has just changed the way that you will go about your daily life. It's the moment when your world of possibility grows only by an inch, but you feel as though the entire universe has been opened for you to explore.

It's that moment of magic. I hope to give people those brief moments when boundaries of possibility disappear. I hope to compel others to push their goals to the wildest edge of edges. And when they reach those goals, they once again transform our view of the world.

I will bring to the world magic.
