It’s safe to say that Bryan Berg has a job unlike any other. Specifically, he makes Guiness-Record-setting sized card towers without a dab of glue or strip of tape in sight.

Nolan’s current focus is Brainrush, an online education platform that uses fast-paced games to teach subjects such as vocabulary, maths and science.
