My aspiration is to make a positive impact on society and the world around me. How do I approach achieving this? Well, I strongly believe it all starts with the right attitude, as attitude, not aptitude, determines altitude. Adhering to this philosophy I strive daily to improve myself and others, and make a positive impact on society. I have strong interests in entrepreneurship, business strategy, finance,and the emergence of Blockchain and Machine Learning technologies. Most interested in working in fast-paced environments where accomplishments and progress are realized quickly, I strive to not only master the technical aspects of the technology sector, but also to fully embrace the industry from a business-minded perspective.
My keen interest in finance has also lead me to manage a personal portfolio of equities, bonds, ETFs and cryptocurrencies while keeping a watchful eye on global financial markets. This perspective has opened my eye to the ability for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology to enable the unbanked to access financial services in which they do not have access to currently. With 1.7 Billion people currently without access to the financial system, economic opportunities are missed, socioeconomic mobility stagnates and starting a business or saving for education becomes simply impossible. Solving this problem with blockchain technology would ensure an economic boom while pulling millions out of poverty.
Currently, I’m the founder and CTO of RideUP; a revolutionary long-distance carpooling start-up enabling more convenient, affordable and environmentally conscious method of long-distance travel. RideUp will launch with both a traditional centralized platform in conjunction with a decentralized Ethereum dApp. RideUp strives to be at the forfront of decentralized, community driven, censorship free dApps. RideUP will be available on iOS, Android, Web, Amazon Alexa and Google Home platforms. Our target launch date is September 2022.
