Nice to meet you!
Hi! My passion is in communicating the impossible while building lasting communities. I was the architect behind the marketing and partner strategy for Ethereum, a platform for smart contracts and next-generation blockchain that went on to raise $18.9m as part of the world's second-largest crowdfunding event and is now valued at over USD 500 billion.
Through my consultancy Ursium.AI, I'm now helping companies like yours navigate complex and sometimes overwhelming next-generation technologies around the buzzword minefield: AI, ML, Deep Learning, Zero-Knowledge Proofs, SMPC.
I was also the Founder and COO of venture-backed Slock.it, a project at the intersection of the IoT and blockchain. Slock.it explored how Ethereum light nodes embedded in connected cars, homes, shared white goods, etc., could revolutionize the emerging Sharing Economy infrastructure by enabling anyone to rent, sell or share their property without a middleman.
I have three start-ups under my belt and bring nearly 30 years of enterprise IT experience to leading-edge initiatives. Before becoming an entrepreneur, I held CTO positions at leading data analytics companies in London, managing million pounds IT budgets for clients including VISA Europe, BP, the CO-OP and dozens of other Fortune 500 companies.
I live in London, UK, with my wife, two children and three beloved pets dogs. When not busy working on a venture, I secretly moonlight as a producer and BTS shots for crowdfunded, independent films.
I regularly speak at conferences and community events.
