Hello my name is Chris Hughes, 35, born and raised in downtown Toronto. High school graduate, college dropout, homeless, a little bit helpless. I have a tattoo on my left arm that reads: “I failed over, over, and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” I’m proud to announce I went from homeless, living in hockey shelters, hockey nets, abandoned cars… now I own and operate my own business in the Annex, downtown Toronto area. I have 12 full-time employees. My company name is A Nerd’s World so you can find me in downtown Toronto.
