As a blockchain theorist and cryptocurrency evangelist, I have been involved in the cryptocurrency market space since 2013. I was the winner of the 2014 Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation / Global Development Network Prize for the creation of the “AidDollar,” a novel blockchain-based solution to solve the problems endemic to foreign aid. As a member of several cryptocurrency development teams, I am a well-known figure in parts of the global cryptocurrency community and am frequently seen sitting on panel discussions focused on the use of blockchain to disrupt various entrenched ecosystems. I have also served as a technical writer and marketing consultant for several notable cryptocurrency projects, including XP, Verge, Reddcoin, and several ICO projects. I am currently the Director of Quoxent, a cryptocurrency focused on developing a research ecosystem for sustainable energy, as well as the VP of Global Business for Moiin, a South Korean-based VR hardware and software development company. Prior to my work in the cryptocurrency and blockchain ecosystems, I worked as a premier academic consultant helping students gain admission to top programs around the world.
