So, if you’ve heard my story and still wondered what’s really up with this goofy-looking kid from Idaho…
…here is a more in-depth and uncensored look at my weirdness. I tried not to hold back too much.
Plus, I figure if we could be potential business partners (wink, wink), better to get some of the more intimate stuff out, right?
We all are weird and unique (and have issues). Here are 11 of mine:
I dunked it once in a semi-professional basketball game in front of NBA and elite college players. Dunking for this 6’3 (with shoes) guy was so uncommon so when that happened…pinch me. Sadly, that might have been the climax of my athletic career.
Where all my white ballers at?
Picked up a b-b-b-ad stuttering habit as a lil guy. I stuttered so, so, so, so, so bad my parents should have rented me out at comedy clubs. Check it:
Transcript? Here goes:
[Me] Dad, Jus-Justin’s not not supposed to to g-go go at Barry’s.
[Me] Cus…So, so, so, so, so, so I can.
[Dad] You can’t go out in the street.
[Me] Yes I can! Then yes I can, Dad!
Notice I am questioning authority at such a young age…my mindset is, “if he can do it, why can’t I?”
Valuable lesson, though. Always question authority or the ‘status quo’.
Swear on my life, I don’t know what ‘twerking’ is. Never cared enough to ask my friends or YouTube it…but more than anything, I go out of my way to avoid ‘brain-numbing’, Buzzfeed-esque, broke-people-type media.

I got two lil sisters from Guatemala. My Mom is great with kids and they needed loving families.
They’re great and we love ‘em unconditionally.
After realizing how bad I (and pretty much everyone) use my phone as a social ‘panic button’ in social situations, I started to make a conscience effort to not look at my phone when I am around other people.
I still got work to do.
I’m borderline-fluent in Portuguese and Spanish after a two-year stint in Brazil and 9 months in Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and El Salvador…
…although I confuse the two so much that I am afraid to speak either one (sigh). Usually, after an hour or so of warming up, it starts rolling off the tongue.
I can watch hours of college hoops, but usually can’t stand TV for more than 5 minutes.
With our limited time in this world, let’s watch some white people cry with joy over kitchen remodels?
Yeah…no. Not knocking anyone’s habits, just my thoughts.
I am a rugged, Idaho boy who climbs mountains, fishes, hikes and makes frequent trips to Electric Beach Tanning Salon.
A little artificial color never hurt no one. (Hey…I thought we said this was a judge-free zone)
I got a cease and desist letter from Drake’s lawyers.
(Long story…but I actually hadn’t done anything illegal)
Speaking of Drake, I like ‘dope’ jams to keep my creativity and blood flowing properly. Or whatever.
In the last few years I’ve been to Cudi, Nas, Lupe, Mac Miller, Game, and Common shows.
This online stuff was a once-fantasy for me. I really manifested this vision as a recent college grad struggling to get a job.
Humbled, I went back to the drawing board and realized that…
1. I had to write my own destiny (not some company or corporation)
2. I wanted to create a mobilized lifestyle through the internet
Fast forward a few years, and things are coming into fruition (had to throw a business buzzword in there…my other favorites: cumbersome, disruptive, synergy, “across multiple-platforms”) and I am in a position to help other people who are wanting to create similar results.
I feel ridiculously blessed to have this type of mindset and still be relatively young in the game.
Finally, I invite you to use this website as your blueprint to dot com success…
…and if you haven’t seen my absurd ‘blogging secrets’ video, that would be a good starting point.
It’s straight-up bonkers.
Thanks for hearing me out for a little bit…we all are strange creatures.
