Nate Wright started his collegiate career at the Air Force Academy in Colorado, where he intended to study computer science. But after a year or so, the Academy pushed him in another direction.
“They told me I wasn’t smart enough to hack it, and they were right,” Wright says. “So I found a subject I didn’t like but wouldn’t fail out of, which was English. That tinted my career from that point forward.”
After graduation, Wright spent time working in artist management and promotion, which largely consisted of driving around in his rusted out ’68 Dodge Dart with a trunk full of posters and a staple gun. It gave him his first taste of small business marketing, and it helped him land a full-time marketing gig at TheFilmSchool. It was there that Wright first met his future business partner, Seth Rasmussen.
