I am a blockchain consultant, specialising in financial and currency applications. I work with start ups and established enterprise firms in designing decentralised systems that can re-platform and extend their businesses and, more often, open up entirely new ones.
From 2005 to 2014 I worked in the City of London, eventually heading up the derivatives sales-trading team at an award winning equity derivatives innovator. Undertaking trade execution with our global client base of hedge funds, banks, pension funds and insurance companies made me realise how critical technology is to this industry yet how inefficient that tech can be. So many functions are either manual or only one step removed from being so, and the same is often true in non-financial sectors too.
Blockchains, tokenised assets and smart contracts are not only enabling the improvement of business process automation but also give us the opportunity to rethink the competitive nature of business and build up networks of companies that benefit from collaboration while remaining independent.
Having a Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence degree and software development background enables me to frame real world needs in appropriate blockchain contexts.
Please contact me if you are interested in discussing how blockchains and decentralised ledgers may work for you.
