Web3 Lead


Decentralised internet technologies and products

I am the Web3 lead within the Digital and AI product team where I work as a Business Innovation Advisor with startup and scaleup ventures in Wellington. I have a deep interest in decentralised internet technologies and associated products. My customers appreciate my expertise in execution and building products while working with distributed tech teams.

My recent career background is in Fintech having previously co-founded and built out a Singapore-based business from start-up to $3m in revenue with products managing USD $300m annually in assets.

I am inspired by the novel technologies within Web3 and I enjoy working on solutions that rewrite what money is and change the world we live in. There are opportunities for New Zealand in decentralised finance and digital assets, and I am inspired by my customers who are seizing these new digital tools to build innovative ventures.
