A bit about my digital past
A whirlwind of fin-techs, start-ups, HackerNest events, MeetUps, community coordination, volunteering, development, international projects, corporations and local Vancouver businesses as well as many entrepreneur projects. I am known as a “life artist” for my broad wealth of knowledge and expertise in disruptive business concepts as well as my many successful projects from fashion to digital art to web development. Check my Blog if you’d like to see some of those projects and I have a Resume and some Testimonials too!
