From Quitting a 9 to 5 Job to Making Six Figures Freelancing
How to Land Your Dream Clients
In 2011 I quit my corporate job working at Boeing to go work for a blogger (and took a big pay cut too).
5 years later, I was working for myself, making six figures a year.
It definitely hasn't been an easy journey, but here are some things I've learned along the way.

My Biggest Video Project Yet — I Am a Blogger
After working in private for over 7 months and finally filing the provisional patent, I'm excited to finally share my new invention!
I've been working with Pat Flynn and the team over at Prouduct to develop a brand new invention built specifically for vloggers.
Introducing my new invention: SwitchPod.
Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K — First Impressions
In this post I share a secret project that's currently launching on Kickstarter that I've been working on with a client for over a year.
Why I Bought a 1080p Camera in 2018
We checked out the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K at NAB 2018. Here is what we think.
Special thanks to Levi, Caleb, and Dave for sharing their opinions.
Tesla Model 3 Review — Hands-on Comprehensive Feature Walkthrough
When there are so many 4K cameras out there (even ones that I already own), why would I buy a 1080p Canon 80D in early 2018?
Testing the "Tech YouTuber Lens" — Sigma Art 18-35mm f1.8 Review
In this video we review EVERYTHING about the Tesla Model 3. Jason rented the $60,000 version and we drove it around, pushed all the buttons, and made sure the car could fit two 6'4" people in the backseat.
Panasonic EVA1 Review — Why I'd Skip This Camera
I'd heard many tech YouTubers rave about the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art Lens, but I didn't fully realize how sharp and unique this lens is until I got it on loan from B&H.
The ability to focus so close to an object at 18mm and shoot at f1.8 gives an amazing look to the footage (or photos).
In this video I discuss whether if I were starting out and could only buy one wide-angle lens, would this be it?
BEST Hard Drive for Video & Photo Editing? — Lacie 2Big 20TB Review
In this review I'm taking a look at the brand new Panasonic EVA1 and I'll be talking about how it compares to other cameras like a Canon C200.
Loupedeck Review — The Adobe Lightroom Editing Console
In this video I review the Lacie 2Big 20TB Thunderbolt Hard Drive and compare it to my Samsung SDD and Western Digital USB 3.0 HDD.
The ability to have just a single hard drive on my desk that has two enclosures to back up via a RAID system, can daisy chain to my Macbook Pro to charge it, and has SD & Compact Flash card slots makes this dock an all-in-one solution that I'll be using as my main hard drive for a while.
This is Loupedeck. A photo editing console for Adobe Lightroom built specifically to speed up photo editing.
I won't make any promises like "it will DOUBLE your editing speed", but this is definitely faster than using a mouse to work your way down the adjustment sliders and both my wife and I noticed a decrease in how long it takes us to edit photos as well as a new found love for editing black & white photographs.
In this review I talk through what it is like to use it and how it made me enjoy editing photos again.
