In the early 90s, I started working within the fast-paced world of technology and IT, specifically deep in the heart of the then "new" internet offerings for commercial and personal usage.
Through the years, I have always kept an eye out for the innovative and the cutting-edge, fully realising the global transformational power of new technologies and media.
For this reason, I have set out to create a blockchain consultancy and training firm, CryptoBaseCamp. Additionally, I sell products on Amazon’s global network of marketplaces and offers training and consulting services for other sellers under my firm, e/booster limited.
I am based in the United Kingdom and work with customers on a global scale, helping individuals and businesses from all walks of life to fulfil their potential.
Over the span of my career, I have assisted clients and organizations with advice that has helped them identify millions of pounds in cost savings, streamline workflows and secure increased sales revenues.
Involved in the blockchain space since 2012, I first got interested in it upon hearing about a new currency called Bitcoin. Back then, crypto-markets weren't very liquid and I spent some time arbitraging between them in my first cyber effort at investing. My personal background then was in finance, and using some of the techniques I had applied in traditional markets I was able to get started in the crypto-currency space.
Fast forward to 2014 and the emergence of new kinds of cryptocurrencies started emerging. I got into the more longterm investment then, and haven't looked back since!
I am currently working as head of growth for a new fintech challenger bank & also taking projects as a consultant on blockchain/DLT projects.
With a career spanning multiple industries - including Retail, Distribution, Supply Chain, Pharmaceuticals, Commodity Trading, Wine Industry and Commercial Insurance, I have extensive, transferable, business experience. My main technical domain expertise is Business Intelligence and Analytics and I have helped numerous organisations to better exploit their data and improve their business processes.
I have been interested in Blockchain since 2014 and formed my own consultancy, Distlytics, in 2016. I have since provided blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology consultancy to financial services organisations, with a particular emphasis on insurance, life & pensions and the legal sector. In 2016 I helped to establish Team Blockchain, a Global Virtual Consultancy Practice and in 2017 provided the technical consulting capability for ClydeCode, an innovative combination of technology and legal expertise.
I am a startup mentor and advisor to Blocksure, an InsurTech that has built a blockchain-based insurance platform. I am also an advisor to several ICO's and I run the ICO Meetup London group.
I have a passion for helping others develop and now provide insight and education through training and consultancy to help individuals and organisations better understand emerging technologies such as blockchain and AI. I hope I can help people learn more about blockchain through the Udemy platform.
