Funny story –
Last weekend, I called Darryl up after I told him I was going to social distance from my phone for 48 hours. I asked him, “Can you not tell that I’ve failed miserably at staying away from my phone?” 😆 He laughs and then tells me,
You didn’t fail, you just found another way to succeed. 💡
He’s right. 💯
I mean, I’ve been stuck in a rut for the longest time but I didn’t need the full 48 hours phone-free to break up my routine and rediscover the things that bring me joy. It always feels good when I honor people by telling them exactly how they made a difference in my life.
Without further ado, here we go!
I met Darryl about three years ago in 1871’s Kitchen 2.0. (1871 Chicago is the tech incubator we both work out of.) He randomly walked up to me and asked me if I had a doppleganger who taught calculus in the building. 🤣 It was there that I learned that he’s the Founder and CEO of mwseq™ (pronounced *music*), a powerful online community that’s setting out to Harmonize the World™.
The pic above was taken at the Legal Operators Virtual Happy Hour, where he edu-tained (get it? educate + entertain) the crowd with stories on technology, innovation, his love of music, and the driving force behind his company – all while playing a curated list of songs on Elton John’s piano at 2112 Chicago, the incubator for creatives downtown.
