Hi. I'm Ian McKenzie,

a schizophrenic entrepreneur sharing my quest for success.

I am a coding addict, graphic design nerd, social media experimenter, hobbyist writer, aspiring salesperson, self-taught marketer, and most of all, a schizophrenic entrepreneur. This website is my little corner of the internet where I blog about my life as an entrepreneur, schizophrenic, ongoing learner, and multipotentialite. New posts every Sunday.

Here's what I'm actively working on...

Full Stack Dev, Design, & Non-profit Management

By day, I assist fellow entrepreneurs in growing their business by helping them adapt to the increasingly digital world via Objektiv Digital. By night, I work on Curious Markings, a collection of writing, gaming, and experiments based on hallucinations from my schizophrenia. On the weekends and when there's demand, I work on the website and integrations for the House of Bob Gaming Club, a group of chaps podcasting and creating in the field of pen & paper and board games.

If you're interested in learning about me and my studio, you can read about my story, my studio, view my art, see some projects I did for fun and for social good. A while back, I quit social media but missed sharing my pointless thoughts. You can find those at my shout hole. If you're an Ian McKenzie superfan (Hi, mom!), check out my shop for some swag. Everything else is in the navigation. Happy browsing!
