In 2006, he left to start his own technology consulting business, working with over 50 schools in the Chicago area. He taught administrators & teachers how to integrate technology in the classroom, using the same comedic techniques to break down the barriers to learning. Lamarr discovered YouTube in 2008 and used it as a fun way to educate & entertain a greater number of people, which led to him creating fun & informative videos full time in 2011 to the present day.
