Born in Columbus, OH as the son of Wim and Roberta Plaat, I was raised in a conservative household with five siblings. Very little of my life has been traditional or followed the conventional norm, thanks to the upbringing my parents provided us.
Our education and spiritual path were strong values they engrained. “Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they grow old they will not depart from it.”
Homeschool education until the age of 15, where I then began full-time courses at The Ohio State University as a participant in their post-secondary education program; the OSU Academy Program.
Since the age of 19, I’ve been self-employed as a consultant and have maintained a successful (that’s open to interpretation) business with a few twists and turns along the way.
I work primarily as a design/marketing/advertising consultant, with a small agency (tripleskinny) team that helps deliver world-class services for our clients.
