After getting kicked out of school twice, Astawa took his education to the proverbial streets by building DxM Creative– an innovative web design agency.
Astawa's story exemplifies success against the odds. By traditional standards, he shouldn't have succeeded. Today, Astawa has led DxM Creative to boast a roster of clients including award-winning entrepreneurs, international non-profits, and (ironically) large universities.
Astawa's unconventional path against the grain taught him many lessons. The most impactful of these lessons being that you don't need permission to start building a business. Astawa shares these lessons regularly with business students and aspiring entrepreneurs through actionable content and personable keynotes.
