I’m an engineer at heart with years of experience in technology and entrepreneurship. I am focused on technology to drive innovations, create solutions, improve efficiencies, and create a better world. I have an interest and knowledge in a wide range of subjects with creative pursuits in technical and non-technical disciplines. One of my hallmark qualities is to be hyper-focused and productive with a resourceful and collaborative approach to delivering results.
I have deep knowledge in mobile applications, guest engagement, and product management across hospitality and blockchain industries. I’ve managed remote and offshore teams.
On my spare time I spend a lot of time with my wife and kids. I also enjoy running when I can get out. If we have time we love to camp and hike as a family. I also have a deep appreciation for photography. When I’m not up to any of these things you’ll find me listening to shortwave radio or on the ham radio waves - my call sign is K6KZO.

I created a bot, called Zobot, to help crypto traders enter and exit trades. Using metrics like RSI, MACD, and moving averages, the bot would create signals for different candlesticks across more than 150 cryptocurrencies in different trading exchanges.
