Can you believe?I applied to Duke...and they rejected me.
Since landing my first job as a newspaper delivery boy at nine years old, I’ve had business on the brain. I launched my first startup, Thriller Designs, a year later and knew I was destined to be an entrepreneur. After graduating from MIT, I started my career at Oracle. From there, I founded several businesses, including Spinner (acquired by AOL Time Warner for $320 million), Brondell, Grouper (acquired by Sony for $65 million), 4 kids, and now, Freestyle.
