“… its not work, when you love it..”

I am Dwight Patel. My granddad uses to tell me how he hasn’t worked a day in his life, and never really understood that until I got older. Now, looking back as a former political operative, turned developer, turned designer, turned entrepreneur I am able to reflect on that view. For about the last 20+ years when I wake up, I have been doing what I love, and work doesn’t feel like a place to go
