Alexis Ohanian co-founded Reddit, and sold it to Conde Nast.Now he has a new publishing venture, Breadpig, and he’s turned into chief evangelist of the Internet.

When the SOPA/PIPA debates were raging, Ohanian was one of the must public voices fighting against the legislation.

As one of the busiest, and most prominent people in tech, we asked Ohanian to gives us a walk through of his day. He obliged. He took photos of what he does every day and gave us captions.

He’s a pretty busy dude — but when he’s not saving the Internet, his days seem almost like your average human.

Well, almost.

Alexis starts the day off with breakfast at his girlfriend's apartment in the Bronx. Quite the view!

From there, he'll take an express bus into the city.

He stops to grab a coffee...

...on the way to a photoshoot for the Nooka look-book. It's a New York-based design firm that sells watches, iPad cases and others.

Then he heads back to the Breadpig office to catch up on email with his chief of staff, Kat. Breadpig is a publishing company.

He meets with a few leads at La Colombe just before lunch.

It's take-out for lunch today. He orders Thai food while he keeps working.

Then he meets with Renthop.com co-founder Lee Lin. They're talking about branding and marketing.

He grabs a train uptown from SoHo to 23rd street...

...and grabs a quick shake over at Shake Shack before heading to his next gig.

He was MC for a Social Innovation Night at General Assembly, a startup school for entrepreneurs.

After a long presentation, he meets up with former TechCrunch writer Jason Kincaid in Union Square.

Then it's back home to Brooklyn Heights...

Wish you were an entrepreneur? Not so fast...
