My Experience

I co-founded and led a startup from idea to successful acquisition. I served as CEO from 2011-2016 and chief visionary officer from 2016-2018. The company had 17 employees and was very profitable at the time of acquisition.

Currently I’m serving as an entrepreneur in residence at Praxis Labs and I’m an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at The King’s College in Manhattan. My new company is focused on increasing access and usability of blockchain technologies.

I have experience speaking at conferences & running workshops. I was a 2018 Aspen Institute Scholar and serve as a Deacon at my church.
