I am now a Business Development representative for Vanbex, a professional services firm serving the blockchain industry! The team is fantastic and I'm hoping to help some of these amazing projects I'm in contact with by connecting them with the wider variety of services that Vanbex can provide!

My recent blog titled "Ethereum’s Early Days Differ Greatly From Bitcoin’s Infancy" details the past year since Ethereum's blockchain fully went live. It's no surprise I'm more energized by the Ethereum portion of the Blockchain community, this post goes into a little bit of detail regarding why as well as identifying my favorite thing that's happening in the space.

Back in March I spoke to Mark Smith of the BBC about Augur for a piece on Blockchain Tech. This was something I haven't shared on here so I definitely needed to change that. Check the piece out here.

I'm continuing to work with the awesome guys over at The Bitcoin Podcast! At the end of March I was able to join my good friend Cello to talk with MMA fighter Jon Fitch! Jon is one of the coolest fighters on the planet and has no problem calling out the UFC for bullshit business practices while also being the very first MMA fighter to be sponsored by a cryptocurrency! One day after this podcast was released, Jon Fitch beat João Zeferino at WSOF 30 to become the WSOF Welterweight Champion!

On the most recent episode of The Bitcoin Podcast featuring an interview with Kraken's Jesse Powell, I joined the roundtable discussion to talk about Coinbase and their voyage into Ether, Trezor's addition of Ether as well as chatting with Steven Mckie of Yours about The DAO!

On April 18th I was on Atlanta Business Radio talking about Augur, Ethereum and Blockchain Tech along with Princess Modupe Ozolua (an actual African Princess!) and Sean Henry of Stord! Listen here.
