I’m most excited to work on projects that… have a positive global impact.

I’m looking for partners that can help me… with forming impactful partnerships.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… having the opportunity to connect big ideas in a digestible fashion.

Innovations in my field I’m most excited to work on… are humanitarian applications of blockchain technology.
