25 years of Corporate America

I had the pleasure of working for some of the world's largest companies and learning how to navigate complex environments and succeed.  


Yes, I built a house

I had never built anything before, but I had a dream to create this house. I bought a teardown and made a new home by myself, and of course, I had the help of years of watching This Old House, a builders guide book, and YouTube.


Singles TV

In the late 90s, I saw an opportunity to meld both television and the internet to bring online dating and custom content to single people in Chicago. My version was a meld of Dave Letterman meets the Love Connection. I did all the production and had it running on Chicago Cable TV.



Over the past several years, I incorporated my marketing and sales experience and developed an online membership business for my wife's company, STATE

We have created an online business that supports individuals who know that there is more to life, and we support them with live and on-demand recorded content.

Where do You Want to Go? 

I was an average student throughout my academic career and was never encouraged to go to college. However, I knew I had what it took to succeed and trusted my abilities. I worked my way through college and graduated from a respected university.
In the worst housing market in history (2011), I decided to quit my corporate job and build a custom spec home. Many people told me I couldn't succeed because I had no formal experience in the trades, and the market was depressed. Again, I knew I had the capacity and the vision to achieve this task. I did build that house, and I sold it for a profit that I had calculated and envisioned 12 months prior.
Why am I sharing these stories with you? Because I want you to know that I'm no different than you. I believed that I could accomplish my hopes and dreams, and then I went about making them happen.
I created Blue Sky because I want to share my knowledge and experience with you and let you know that you are more than capable of achieving your hopes and dreams. Sometimes you need someone in your corner who believes in you.
