Personal Bio

Currency Expert with 22 years of experience in a wide variety of alternative currencies, from local community development projects in SE Asia, Africa and Latin America, to Digital and Cryptographic Currencies in Asia, North America and Europe. I have been involved in all aspects of this industry, including systems design, implementation and management.

With my years of expertise and reputation in the subject, I hold numerous positions and have published in journals and international publications, and giving talks in over 10 countries. My work has been presented in "The Future of Money" by Bernard Lietaer, "The End of Money and the Future of Civilization" by Thomas Greco, in "Healthy Money, Healthy Planet" by Diedre Kent, in “New Money for a New World”, and “Rethinking Money: How New Currencies turn Scarcity into Prosperity” by Bernard Lietaer and Jacqui Dunne, and mentioned in “The Anti-Capitalism Reader: Imagining a Geography of Opposition” by Joel Schalt.

My latest venture is Coin Academy, which I co-founded this year with Ric Shreves to facilitate the mass adoption on Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies.
