After the United State Marine Corps, I had the honor of serving as the Director of Technology for the world's largest venture capital firm during the legendary dotcom era. Companies I subsequently co-founded operate at the front edge of innovation, creation, and value growth, including: - NatureTrak, processing over $2.5 billion dollars in risk managed cannabis banking transactions and adding millions daily to total volume. - The Minters Collective, a company founded on the ground-floor of blockchain technology to provide education and services to NFT creators and collectors. - Evolution Accelerator, a venture studio connecting entrepreneurs with the skills, knowledge, and capital support needed to raise professional-level investor support, together with Evolution Ventures, a syndicated investment group providing hundreds of angel investors access to emerging opportunities. - The DAO Treasury Corporation, bringing the tools and expertise necessary to enable commercial banking and lending for decentralized organizations. Today, I am a member of the Sacramento Angels and serve as an advisor to dozens of startup and growth companies.
