The Blockchain Show Team

In May 2016, a crack commando (as in wearing no underwear) unit was sent to the recording studio for a crime they hadn’t yet committed (probably). These men and women promptly escaped from a maximum-security production suite to the Los Angeles underground.

Today, still wanted by Cryptogeeks, Unicorns and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations around the world, they survive as soldiers of (not much) fortune.

If you have a problem… if no one else can help… and if you can find them… maybe you can hire… The Blockchain Show Team.

On the potential of Blockchain:

“First of all, some may describe me as a Luddite, while in fact I am jumping on this creative new train of thought. For after trudging through the sludge of an old and dying system, I find great hope and joy when people come together in a positive effort to improve our way of life.

Above all, It’s incredibly liberating and the possibilities seem endless.”

He’s so London he’s so South. He has made a career in surfing on the leading edge of technology, whether that’s Internet, Virtualisation, Cloud and now Blockchain and therefore looking forward to what comes next.

Likes a craft ale and similarly making fiery chilli sauces, and finding the best combination of the two with a Brisket sandwich. Above all, if you’re going to a Pub Quiz, you’ll want him on your team.
