90 second intro video

👋Howdy. I’m Cam.

I’m a 4x founder who builds entrepreneurship and leadership programs.

This site has writing and other projects. My work site is slightly more serious.

Stuff I’ve Built

Actionworks: Education company that builds entrepreneurship and leadership programs for the U.S. Department of State, Intel, the University of Texas, and dozens more.

Minimum Viable Video: Cohort-based course that teaches entrepreneurs and knowledge workers how to make videos to get customers and create opportunities.

(Previously) 3 Day Startup: 10-year CEO journey scaling an entrepreneurship bootcamp to 50 countries.

That time we took Minimum Viable Video to Ecuador.

Personal

  • My partner and I (and her ridiculous cats) split our time between Austin, TX and Savannah, GA
  • Interests: Formula 1, Mexican food, Alvvays, Nolan films, cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman’s theory of reality, Longhorn football
  • I write a newsletter with stories and tips on video, entrepreneurship, and shooting your shot
  • I’ve had a hell of a lot easier time building companies than figuring out vulnerability; that came with Personal Boards of Directors
  • I have a mysterious health condition. Sharing this because I’m out of ideas

    Where Nobody Wants You to Become a Millionaire

    A “one that got away” shady business deal in Russia…Nine years ago, a colleague-of-a-colleague had a connection to someone who worked under Putin. Putin wanted to beef up Russia’s economic presence in the East as a hedge against the West’s global business dominance. Putin had selected Vladivostok—a port city abutting China and the Pacific—as the next big thing for Russian entrepreneurship.
