These are my most relevant jobs I've had while in my 20's.
I was hired as an iOS game developer. When that game shipped, I helped re-invent Hours as a marketer/business developer, and other things. After we sold Hours, I’ve been doing branding, marketing, and design work on our own apps and products, as well as our client’s apps since. Each app has hit #1 in their category and featured on the homepage of the app store. Tapity ended business at the end of 2016.
Working part time as a hobby on our new game, Throne of Lies - Online 3D multiplayer social deduction game of deceit, inspired by medieval politics and the Werewolf/Mafia party game genre.
I created our Kickstarter, which was successfully funded with 393 backers who pledged $21,795. Our game was also greenlit on Steam Greenlight. Alpha testing begins March 31st, or shortly after. We have over 2,500 registered accounts. I'm also the community manager and I help write lore for the game.
Fun Fact #1: The host on the right, Sam Iglesias, now works at Apple.
Fun Fact #2: A 4 oz unit of my tea cost me about $1.75. I sold it at $22.
Fun Fact #3: I hand-drew our brand logo onto each bag, usually while in Entrepenuership class, sitting next to Jeremy Olson (Founder of Tapity). I also wrote "thank you" notes for every order.
This is where I got started as an all-around do everything guy. I invented the brand, made the website and shipped the orders. I had a tea blog called TeaHacker.com. A ton of tea companies were asking to advertise on my site and send me free tea to review. I decided that instead of selling their tea, I'd start my own tea company and sell my own tea. I found some tea plantations in China willing to sell to me in bulk, and that's how Utopian Tea came into existance. I stopped doing this when I sold out of my bulk tea to focus on Computer Science at UNC-Charlotte.
