“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” — Pablo Picasso
If you've made it to this page you must be wondering...
Who is this lunatic?!
I'm, David Bentley, the founder of ZeroZen and the website formula you'll find on this site.
I call myself a web designer. I actually built my first website 7 years ago. To be completely transparent, I didn't even build it. I hired an Indian to build it for me.
Before I started ZeroZen, I was living in Spain trying to figuring out what I wanted to be when I grew up and what I wanted to do with my life. Web design wasn't always in the cards for me.
All I knew before this was carrying a gun.
I started my adult life in the Marine Corps. After Iraq, I left the Corps and became a police officer. Following law enforcement I headed overseas again, this time as a contractor in Afghanistan.
I was just as green at this as you might be.
The first few years I lived right at the poverty line but had no plan B if things didn't go well. I just told myself I would figure it out and keep on going until I made it as a web designer.
I never thought I would be a web designer in my lifetime. It never crossed my mind.
Besides web design, I invest in amazing people with amazing companies. I've recently began investing in real estate as well.
I love working with small businesses and entrepreneurs because that is where I can make the biggest impact.
Many of my clients around the world know me as more than a web designer. I help people figure out strategy and execution using technology to make it easier and more impactful. A website is just one small piece of the puzzle.
My business philosophy
It is easy to make money using the internet whether you have a brick and mortar location or an online enterprise.
For most people, just being shown how to succeed online is enough.
As a web designer, my goal is to make the website owning experience simpler and manageable.
As a consultant, my goal is to give you advice based on lessons learned and proven steps.
As an investor, my goal is to invest time and money that creates a visible return for me and those I love while giving back to the community and the world.
Let's work together. Every dollar you pay me has a guarantee attached.
I hope I get the chance to work with you soon!

Bottom line, this is the man you want to build a website WITH you. 5 stars!"
