Hey there! 👋🏻 My name is Ken.

Back in 2014, I got my first job as a developer with no degree, no bootcamp, no connections in the industry, and no relevant experience.

I bootstrapped my way to my first job by doing three things:

  • Building a strong portfolio of custom projects
  • Growing an impressive online presence
  • Intelligently networking and reaching out to potential employers

For some reason, the ridiculously inefficient process of sending out hundreds of applications into the void in the hopes of getting 1 or 2 responses is considered normal.

This is not normal, and not a good way to go about getting a job, especially not your first one.

My name is Ken. I'm a community-taught developer who works full-time for a software development agency. I've been a developer for over 7 years and absolutely love my job.

I also have a passion for teaching aspiring developers how to land their first jobs.

I see how much bad advice is out there, how discouraged people are, and I know how much of a difference doing things a little differently can make.

So I distilled everything I know and everything I teach inside my main course and community, Lever, and condensed it down into the essentials in this 10-day email course.


  • Why you should avoid traditional application/resume submissions like your career depends on it (because it does)
  • How to create a strong online presence so your work stands out among everyone else
  • The best kinds of projects to build to impress employers (and the kind to avoid like the plague)
  • A simple method for natural, effective, non-sleazy networking
  • My favorite tactic for impressing any employer and instantly standing out among every else (seriously NOBODY is doing this and it's ridiculously powerful)

I'm a big believer in small behavioral changes implemented consistently, so every email comes with a simple action step for you to complete that day and to add to your daily schedule.

These small, consistent habits are what will enable you to launch and grow a successful career.
