Can you tell us about your background?
I’m originally from Canada’s east coast — a small island called Cape Breton. In High School I was part of a group of ‘nerds’ as they called us back then, that had the first desktop PC’s at home (my friend’s house) and we made some rudimentary programs — but mostly worked on hardware.
I went on to live in a lot of different places in the country, came back home, and got a job working for the Nova Scotia Department of Education in the Labour Market Partnerships division. I stayed there for 5 years then moved to Japan where I spent 7 years working in the Education sector. A job transfer brought myself and my daughter to Bangkok, Thailand which is where we are today. While in Thailand, I’ve worked in a few different industries including education, back to the public sector with the UN, and with the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand.
I actually started with LoyalCoin — helping them run a successful event here in Bangkok and then moved over to NEM later in the same year. I was brought on to head up Thailand activities. I am currently the Secretary for the Executive Committee so it’s been quite a ride for me, I even have a blockchain CEO kid!
Why do you like NEM?
I like the ease of use for NEM. Whenever I talk about NEM, I always highlight that ‘even my kid can create a token’. I find it’s of paramount importance that blockchain appeals and reaches as many people as possible for mainstream adoption. We are still at the beginning of a nascent technology class, so ‘demystifying’ blockchain and cryptocurrencies is really important to me.
