Founder of Next Decentrum | Blockchain & NFT Startup
Founder and CEO of Next Decentrum, a blockchain company building Momentable, an NFT e-commerce platform focused on helping museums, art collectors, and cultural institutions create, manage, and promote NFT-based digital products and collections on the Flow blockchain.
Museums, galleries, and artists can use Momentable to publish digital versions of iconic artworks and artifacts, making them more accessible than ever before and as a result, protect their valuable assets, generate new revenue streams, and reach collectors around the world.
Next Decentrum is working with some of the top museums in North America and the world. We partnered with Visual Capitalist, one of the fastest growing online publishers globally, and Daily Hive, a leading Canadian online publication with a hyper-local focus.
In 2006, I launched CreativeArab, the world’s first and largest marketplace for Middle Eastern art focused on connecting artists across the Arab world with a global audience (acquired). Then I launched The Content People in 2010, an award-winning content marketing agency with clients that included Virgin Mobile, Pfizer, and Starbucks.
In 2016 I joined Launch as General Manager. Launch is one of North America’s top tech hubs and startup incubators. We helped over 6500+ founders and 500+ startups raise over $1 billion. In 2019 I joined 3 tier logic as VP of Products & Strategy, I worked with some of the world’s most valuable brands including Universal Studios, P&G, and Kimberly Clark.
I write and speak about startups, blockchain, and NFTs, and advise several tech and blockchain startups including Mobile Art School, Fintrux, Majik Bus, Traction Health, AmiPro, Cloud Nine, and Peace Geeks.
Recognized in 2019 as one of 30 Vancouver tech thought-leaders and influencers to follow. Featured in Forbes, BBC, BetaKit, Entrepreneur, DailyHive, Notable, and CBC.
When not building products, I enjoy writing, reading, and engaging in meaningful conversations over good coffee.
My favourite pastimes are playing chess with my kids, binging on good drama and science fiction, drawing, and learning new guitar licks, sometimes all at the same time :)
