Then, he made a decision that changed his life.
“I woke up the next morning. I looked at myself in the mirror and I said I can’t do this anymore and I went cold turkey.”
Since then, he has been clean for four years and is working to get back on his feet. He restarted his business – a digital graphic design company called Nerdy Designs. It’s something he has had a passion for since he was a child.
Without an office, he worked out of McDonald’s using the public Wi-Fi.

Now he has a place of his own – with a new home for his business.
