Why I joined The Direct...

I co-founded and joined The Direct to have an opportunity to do something special. I wanted to expand our social media brand comprised of MCU Direct & Star Wars Direct to a much larger scale, and forming a website seemed like the appropriate next step. When I realized that Jack not only had the programming skills for making The Direct, but also the vision for what The Direct could become, I knew that creating this together was a must. With this website and brand of The Direct, I want to build a community for people to share their love about the things which they are passionate about. One of my personal goals is to have a positive impact on as many people's lives as possible, and The Direct will provide me the opportunity to do just that.
