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 manage a mysterious health condition—maybe you’ll be the one to diagnose it?

    Ask For More

    MBAs, psychopaths, and natural-born salespeople are experts at making the big ask. A position outside of their experience level, the phone number of someone out of their league, free guac at Chipotle, things that others would never consider possible, they do with aplomb.

  • Big Ideas Aren’t Enough

    Big Ideas Aren’t Enough

    One of the cruel realities of the world is that a good idea won’t go far on its own. A good idea—especially one that is novel, original, and unproven—needs a persuasive, resourceful person pushing it forward.
