I’m currently the Head of Engineering at Nautical Commerce, and sometimes consulting through Chai Ventures. Fintech is my professional speciality; specifically around utilizing cutting edge technologies to build the future of financial services.
Prior to this, I’ve spent over 13 years in the Toronto technology and startup ecosystem in various roles and companies including leading Technology at VC fund Highline Beta; founding multiple startups; and having been on the early teams of Semantic Health, Pungle Payments (acq. 2019), Terapeak (acq. 2017), and Well.ca (acq. 2017).
Fintech, specifically around how we can build new robust protocols that help all humans build wealth, and participate in the growth of our global economy.
Machine Learning/AI, specifically around solving human problems with the harnessed power of tons of overpriced GPUs.
Society, specifically around solving real human problems like climate change, becoming a multi-planetary species, and educating our massively growing populations.
Sports; I am a fan of the Toronto Raptors, Toronto Blue Jays, New England Patriots, FC Barcelona. I am 100% not a Leafs fan, and am embarrassed for my friends who were born into Leafs fandom.
Gaming; I primarily play Zelda Tears of the Kingdom these days.
