He is a co-founder of two companies in the legal profession, a highly sought-after speaker who has presented to companies including Subway, Microsoft, Amazon, and he is a contributor to Forbes. Sisu Academy is embedded with an incubator fueled by entrepreneurs and seed capital creating an immersive learning environment that funds all operational costs. They are a 501(c)(3) non-profit for the public good. High-altitude low-achieving students often lack the resources and support to become tomorrow’s leaders in our country. The skills gap is widening due to a system crippled by lack of funding, rendering truly inspiring solutions cost prohibitive. They plan to expand beyond the prevailing education models and create something new.

He also speaks at several Technology Conferences on social media conversation and tracking.
