👋 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.

Minimum Viable Video is an online cohort-based course. But we took an in-person version to Ecuador.

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.


  • My partner and I (and her ridiculous cats) split our time between Austin, TX and Savannah, GA
  • Interests: Formula 1, Mexican food, Alvvays, coffee, Nolan films, cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman’s theory of reality
  • 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. Maybe you have some

Thanks to Buildspace, I found myself in the running for $100,000 last week.  I was one of 16 people—whittled down from 7,500—who had a shot. I didn’t win it. But it doesn’t matter. My ROI from […]

    Beating Perfectionism Means Striving For Collisions, Not Beauty

    Tuning forks produce ethereal, harmonically pure musical tones. Musicians use them to tune their instruments. The crystal clear, frequency-perfect note vibration is a precursor to a violinist or cellist producing a dazzling piece of music. But what comes before that gorgeous, sustained ringing of the tuning fork? A big, dumb collision. A gesture devoid of […]

    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 […]
