As an entrepreneur from a young age, I have had multiple small businesses and have spent the last 11 years as a technical trader in the cryptocurrency, derivatives, and foreign exchange markets. Delving further into blockchain and cryptocurrency in 2017, I was involved in a number of blockchain/crypto companies in the areas of self-sovereign identity, anti-fraud, and gamification. I have been involved in a number of client projects that range from companies between $0-100M in revenue, focused primarily on market analysis and growth strategy.
