Plus this:

Here’s an article I wrote about product management/design and distributed computing that just got published on Hackernoon: hackernoon_DOT_com/designing-for-distributed-computing-be5d4c1ab2a1

My portfolio is still a WIP and I lack the time to update it fully these days due to the fact that I just ended my contract at RBC and started 2 new short-term contracts (1.5 months is the longest of the 2) with 2 different blockchain startups here in Toronto:

  1. product design gig with PointChain
  2. product design gig with MetaMesh

I’m someone who’s deathly passionate about blockchain and design and hope you can appreciate that. Thank you.
