My passion is working in emerging technologies, with a unique focus on AI, blockchain technology, data security, digital ledger technology and digital assets to shape multiple industries like healthcare, finance and new and immersive media markets. I am a two-time entrepreneur and innovation and growth strategist at all stages of innovation from ideation, venture funding and capital infusion to exit or acquisition. Extensive experience developing and executing B2B and B2C marketing and business strategies for blockchain and enterprise software products and services and working closely between public and private funding mechanisms as well as every stage of a small business growth cycle.
• Successfully supported early-stage entrepreneurs and ventures through a gross raise of nearly $150m in 2017.
• Cofounded the Digital Asset Trade Association with a mandate to work closely with state and federal policymakers and build a
working framework for identity, custody, and banking within the industry.
My views on technology and innovation have been featured in The Washington Post, VentureBeat, The New York Times, BBC, Modern Luxury, Distributed, Forbes and Spectator.
