• I was introduced to bitcoin in early 2011 and since then I’ve worked with or consulted many of the most important companies in the industry. I’ve also started multiple blockchain companies, spoken at events across the country, organized a blockchain meetup group, and attended the 2015 Blockchain Summit on Richard Branson’s Necker Island.

• In 2016 I founded an organization called Experiential VR where I demoed cutting edge technologies and experiences to thousands of people at events around the country. A year after launching the company I organized and ran a special VR project that was presented at Peter Diamandis’ A360 event.

• Futurism is an obsession for me so I spend an absurd amount of time studying the works of futurists like Peter Diamandis, Ray Kurzweil, Stewart Brand, and Kevin Kelly.

• I host the “Way of the Futurist” podcast where I explore our emergent future with leading entrepreneurs, investors, hustlers, and innovators to provide listeners with the tips, tricks, and tools to begin thinking and acting like futurists.

• I’m fascinated with behavioral economics and the concept of usable psychology.

• I’ve lived in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, 3 states and 16 cities in the past 20 years and now reside in Utah.

• Married with 4 crazy hellions. Actually, they’re amazing kids.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ animation=”fadeInRight”][vc_column_text align=”center”]

If we hope to insulate ourselves from this suffering, it is critical that we prepare for the future with a solid strategy. By understanding the mindset and process of taking action employed by leading futurists combined with an understanding of the emerging technologies poised to disrupt our lives, we’ll more quickly find our unique value proposition and be in a position to capitalize on high value opportunities. I share my personal path to becoming a Futurist along with my process for learning about and leveraging emerging technologies to not only withstand the disruption of technological innovation, but to thrive in the exponential technology driven world of the future.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”The New Equation of Value: How individuals can leverage emerging technologies to become exponentially more valuable” tab_id=”1484811991750-2c84fd72-848a”][vc_column_text]What was once saved for Sci-Fi thrillers, is now becoming part of our everyday lives. Technologies such as virtual reality, 3d printing, the blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotics and many others are quickly changing how we create things, interact with each other, learn, work and live. It is critical that we prepare for a future in which technology plays an ever increasing role. In this presentation I blow minds with stories of technological innovation that helps audience members realize just how far technology has advanced. I then provide an action plan to help audience members begin to leverage emerging technologies on their way to becoming exponentially more valuable to their companies, communities and the world.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”The Future of Work: Technology’s impact on how we work” tab_id=”1484812136939-f80b1364-47c4″][vc_column_text]In the past decade we have experienced an emergence of disruptive technologies and companies that are shifting the job market. Companies like Uber and Airbnb have led the way in the Sharing Economy. Others, like Freelancer and Elance have paved the way for the Gig Economy, while platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Ethereum have revolutionized how entrepreneurs raise money and bring products to market. And more recently, the technology behind Bitcoin (blockchain) has created a movement towards decentralization. Together we explore the trends and technologies disrupting the work place. Audience members will learn how to position their companies to take advantage of the shifting tides to gain market share and become more valuable to shareholders and customers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding=”custom-padding” top=”10px” bottom=”10px”][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”CONSULTING”][vc_column_text]What’s your ExTech strategy?
