I’m Simon Fraser.

I live in Charleston, SC. When I’m not creating videos, I’m running, reading, writing, or interacting with interesting people.

What I Believe: Every human has a unique story. It is worthwhile to help people understand who they really are because this will help them accept responsibility for creating their own story.

My Story: I dropped out of college when I was 19 to run a $750,000 house-painting franchise. I learned so much outside of school that I wrote a book on education. After painting, I traveled the country in an RV, then worked for an alternative education startup where I coached young people to build an education and career on their own terms. Now, I am building a video marketing business that helps companies build an audience by discovering and communicating their core values.
