Curious what I’m about or what I’m up to? Here's my personal mission statement, a list of my current projects, and an invitation to you.
Hi. I’m Steve.
I’m a creator, writer, and professional learner. Welcome to my home on the internet. ^_^
It’s wonderful of you to stop by and look around. I’m glad you’re curious! Just so you know, I’d much rather have a conversation than just sit here and tell you about myself. I believe I have quite a lot to learn from everyone I meet.
In fact, I suspect we both have a lot to learn from each other.
In 2013 I graduated with a fine art degree in photography stoked to keep learning about the world and make a dent in the universe. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to make a lifestyle out of going where I don’t belong and asking questions – and I’ve made some amazing friends along the way.
Since entering “the real world” I have:
Read hundreds of books
Started two businesses
Worked with some of my fav companies
Driven over 10,000 KM all over the U.S.
Lived in my own apartment in Hong Kong
Prioritized family and friend time
Written and published a book
Made 1000 videos and attended half a dozen conferences on different topics.
I can take credit for exactly zero of those opportunities and none of those achievements. Most were lessons I learned from other people, and a few were even gifts. So many people have helped me along the way!
I’ve had the most fun of all helping my friends figure out how to really dream big and then watching them turn their goals into reality.
Because I continue to have so much help from generous people along my journey – I’ve seen how well dreaming big can work – I want to help people set inspiring goals and achieve them quickly.
I’m going to continue exploring, and I want to keep learning by teaching others!
I want to help you chase your dreams.
(Or if you’re not sure what dreams to chase, I’d like to help you set goals that inspire you.)
My life is amazing because of the generosity of my friends. If you’re up for it, I want to pay it forward and help you find and follow your dreams.
I think the best way I can be useful is by giving away the tools and techniques that helped me most on my journey for free. No catch.
I’ve put together an email-course that you don’t have to keep coming back for, or even remember to do!
Each lesson lands right in your inbox (or via text) over the course of a few weeks, and then you’ll get a short story update from me every once in a while after that. Obviously, you can unsubscribe at any time.
Each lesson is just a simple action or prompt you can do right when you get the email or text, and then a link to read more if you’re curious.
Start The Conversation
It’s free to sign up. The course is delivered to you one simple step at a time.
Here are the highlights:
