About Me

My Interests

I am a first year business student at Southern Methodist University and the CEO and founder of Mac-Magician. I am also a car and technology fanatic. I enjoy working, listening to music (mostly country), going to concerts, hanging with friends, watching sports, following politics, and traveling.

I was heavily involved in Business Professionals of America where I have placed at Nationals as well as Habitat for Humanity where I have participated in summer blitz builds in West Virginia. 

I look forward to meeting you in the future.

My Businesses

Mac-Magician officially opened in June 2011 and is still growing. Mac-Magician is a technology services and products business servicing the Hinsdale, IL area. Visit www.macmagician.net to learn more.


One2Many is Uber for you and your car. You can request a ride for you and your car when you can't or shouldn't be driving home. We are hoping to help prevent drunk driving by offering a viable solution for getting people and their cars home after a night out. Visit one2manyapp.com to learn more.


WeFuel is a marine gas delivery service for boats on Diamond Lake in Michigan. We deliver gas and will fill your boats for you upon request.


Because of my passion for cars and deals, I offer a service to friends and family where I research and suggest car options when they are looking for new vehicles. I even begin the negotiating process for them by requesting quotes and pitting dealers against each other to get the best price. I am currently working on trying to automate this service.

My Music

I'm a lead singer, bass and keyboard player in the cover band,  Kontrolled Kaos. We perform regularly at local restaurants and bars as well as at community charity events.  


I also co-hosted a radio show on 88.5FM WHSD at Hinsdale Central called the Eclectic Devil playing a mix of country and alternative music.


Additionally, I have been a party DJ for hire for the past 4 years. I work kid’s dance parties, block parties, adult social events and fundraisers. Contact me for quotes and availability.
