I have been involved in emerging financial technologies like bitcoin since 2010 and I have dedicated a good portion of my time to education and consulting. I recently started a research and consulting company called Tecmap Consulting. I also have a small collaborative production company called Dual Minds Studios. In the past I have played music semi-professionally in a couple different bands and as a solo artist. I am a third generation musician and writer. My passions in life are my family, music, and technology. My interests are quite eclectic, I enjoy spending my time studying economics, history, art, music, philosophy, and any emerging technology.
