“I’ve always thought my dream was to be a scientist, a speaker, a preacher, an educator, a professional gamer, an economist and a tech entrepreneur. These were all avenues that I’ve explored and acquired skills in, but something was missing in all these. These were all occupations that can change the world, but I wanted more. The passion and spark that was missing was ignited when I chanced upon a program 10 years ago that was a simple game and yet it created something called Bitcoin. As a gamer, I got interested and decided to dabble in it. By chance, I picked up the whitepaper online and my perspective of the world changed. The financial world was in a mess and this new concept became my all-encompassing belief, science and vision. This new world is one in which I could become the scientist, the speaker, the preacher, the educator, the gamer, the economist and the tech entrepreneur. I am now a consultant to projects and enterprises big and small, a builder of sovereign level tech, a creator of new economic models, a president of a multi office advisory, an author (which is a bonus), an advisor to exchanges and more to come.”
