In Depth

Who would you call your mentor?

Satoshi Nakamoto. Whoever you are, wherever you are, thank you.

What kinds of changes do you foresee in this industry within the industry in the next year? The next 5 years?

Web3/crypto is here to stay. We will see new levels of inclusiveness, openness, shared ownership, democratization, freedom of speech and transparency never before seen.

What are the current trends that are directly impacting your business?

There’s been a significant downturn in all markets with crypto certainly not being an exception. That said, I have a very low time preference philosophy in regards to entrepreneurship and investing. I look at current market conditions as an opportunity to build and invest in sustainable assets/enterprises. A few quotes come to mind: ‘A rising tide raises all ships’ And ‘When the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked’

Describe a recent challenge that you overcame.?

Making a career transition as an internet marketing professional for over 10 years to newfound, fledgling web3 entrepreneur.

What are you most proud of?

My TLD portfolio!

What fact about you would surprise people?

I am an abysmal student/academic. As much as I would love to wear my college drop out status as a badge of honor, it wasn’t much of a choice for me!

What was the best advice you were ever given?

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”

What are you most looking forward to at the upcoming NamesCon?

I’m really looking forward to connecting with other Handshake enthusiasts (we have an incredibly passionate community) as well as introducing others to what I believe may be the ultimate disruptive technology in the new namespace frontier.

How would you describe NamesCon to a new domainer?

A can’t-miss event to stay relevant and up to date on the bleeding edge of digital web assets.
