👋 Howdy! I’m Cam.

I’m a 4x founder (2 wins, 2 losses) obsessed with helping communities of founders and knowledge workers grow their companies and careers.

This site has writing and random other stuff. My work site is a little more formal.

I do this for a living—mostly through building entrepreneurship programs and running my own cohort based course.

Stuff I’ve built:

Minimum Viable Video: The project that I’m most passionate about these days is a cohort-based course that teaches entrepreneurs how to make videos to get customers and create opportunities.

Actionworks: Consultancy building entrepreneurship programs for Apple, the U.S. Department of State, the University of Texas, and dozens more.

Previously: 3 Day Startup: 10-year CEO journey scaling an education company to 50 countries.

  • I have a mysterious health condition. Sharing this because I’m out of ideas. Maybe you have some.

    Be Careful What You Carry

    I was sitting on the trunk of my beat up Honda in a nondescript apartment complex parking spot. Waiting for my bass player Monty to hop in my car so we could drive to practice. My amplifier was in the backseat poking out of the open window. The scene was an accurate depiction of life […]

    Seeing is Believing? Not According to Donald Hoffman.

    Consider the light blue folder on your computer desktop. You drag that folder to the trash bin icon at the bottom right of your screen.  Your MacBook emits the familiar, satisfying sound of paper getting scrunched into a ball.  That folder is now deleted and hard drive space has freed up. Inside of your computer, […]
