Weekly stories and tips on entrepreneurship, video, and shooting your shot:

opportunities Happen when you hit record

👋 Howdy! I’m Cam.

I call Austin home with my partner and her two ridiculous cats. My work and my thinking focuses on how entrepreneurs and knowledge workers can use video to grow their companies and their careers.

This site has writing and random other stuff. My work site is a little more formal.

Stuff I’ve built:

Present: Minimum Viable Video: The project that I’m most passionate about these days is a cohort-based course that teaches entrepreneurs how to make videos to get customers and create opportunities.

Actionworks: Consultancy building entrepreneurship programs for Apple, the U.S. Department of State, the University of Texas, and dozens more.

Past: 3 Day Startup: 10-year CEO journey scaling a bootcamp to 50 countries.


  • My partner and I split our time between Austin, TX and Savannah, GA
  • I’ve had a hell of a lot easier time building companies than figuring out vulnerability; that came with Personal Boards of Directors
  • Interests: F1, Mexican food, Alvvays, cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman’s theory of reality
  • I have a mysterious health condition. Sharing this because I’m out of ideas. Maybe you have some.
