A bit about me.


WORK

2015 - Present
I invest in early stage companies typically with a focus on blockchain, data and future tech.

September 2020 - Present
Currently building something new in the sphere of autonomous businesses and blockchain.

September 2019 - February 2020
Went to China to do artificial intelligence research with a few leading startups and investors there.

January 2015 - September 2019
I was CEO & co-founder of a real estate technology company called Bedly. We scaled the company to 40+ people, had raised a total of $7M in venture capital, and had done a total of $20M in sales. We ended up getting acquired. I'm writing a much longer blog post to put together lessons learned, it was quite a journey.

June 2014 - January 2015
I quit IBM and was working on an early iteration of what would become Bedly. I also was building mobile apps for clients on the side after teaching myself to code(not well - but good enough).

January 2013 - June 2014
I worked at IBM in their cyber security software business. Essentially we provided software to big banks to protect them from getting hacked. This was at the time of the Target breach, needless to say business was booming.


PERSONAL

I was born in Belgium as the youngest of nine children(seven brothers and one sister). After ten years spending time living in France, Belgium and India I moved to the Boston area for high school and college.

I've spent considerable time in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
