About Me

I’ve always questioned authority and enjoyed doing things differently. I’m looking to get to know your business deeply. I provide direct, honest, and clear legal advice. I get excited when your business succeeds, and I am always happy to talk strategy whether it’s from a legal or business perspective.

I am up-to-date on all technology trends, from Cryptocurrencies and NFTs, Nuclear Fusion, Quantum Computing, No-code Platforms, Government-issued Stable coins and Fintech, Media Censorship, and AI. This list will likely be out-dated by the time you read this.

The rate of change in our society is increasing. You want a representative who understands the changes going on around us and is actively participating in them. You don’t want a legal representative who barely can use a computer or one who still deals mostly with cheques to receive payment. It’s easy to get me on a call to get your matters the attention they deserve.

Above all, I’m looking to invest in the people and the businesses I work with. I want to discuss the developments in your business. I want to give feedback. I want my legal advice to be clear and understandable. I want to develop lasting business relationships with talented and intelligent people. I want to help the Underdogs grow to become industry Titans.
