As a customer-centric technology professional, I bring a unique blend of skills derived from extensive experience in sales, marketing, and customer management from both hardware and SaaS companies. As a professional that has worked as the customer advocate as well as an innovative and entrepreneurial leader, I want to join an organization that knows the power of data analytics and how to apply the technology of blockchain to real-life situations.  I believe that blockchain will revolutionize the world and I would love to help companies tell their story and build their brand around how they are going to be the tipping point in the market.
