Summary of Experience

I was first bitten by the Bitcoin bug in late 2012, but it wasn’t until late 2014 when I recognized I had to build my own path into the industry. It all began with my involvement and organization of the Bitcoin San Diego Meetup group, the creation of CoinStructive, a consulting firm specializing in software development to help companies, startups and enterprises, utilize blockchain technology solutions, a podcast: LAB Radio, and US regulatory and policy related work. CoinStructive also provides Certified Continuing Education training targeting the intersection of state law enforcement, banking compliance professionals and the legal community. Our focus on education has helped empower founders, entrepreneurs, executive teams and policy makers to make well informed and confident business decisions. I am a proponent of and helped shape the Uniform Law Commission’s Virtual-Currency Businesses Act. I have sponsored the formation of the Consumers’ Research guiding principles for “Protecting Consumers in the Digital Currency Economy ”. I am a Certified Fraud Investigator, have provided expert witness testimony at the federal level and was the former Chief Compliance Officer for a Bitcoin ATM company. Most recently, I became the host of the San Diego chapter of the Government Blockchain Association(GBA) to help bridge the gap between elected officials and emerging technologies specific to distributed ledgers and decentralized finance tech. I currently sit on several subcommittees for the ULC/ALI’s hosted discussions on how virtual currencies should be considered with respect to the Uniform Commercial Code(UCC).
