With 20 years of interactive experience spanning website production all the way to festival winning Virtual Reality, I have been able to build my skillset across multiple verticals. Before joining the largest brands in the world, I spent my days and evenings in web production at junior and mid levels, cutting my teeth in how interactive and social media were beginning to form. From there I made my way to the largest properties in the world - Star Wars, Indiana Jones, LEGO, Avatar, and more, with success at every step of the way.Upon joining Lucasfilm as a writer/producer for StarWars.com, I fell backwards into marketing and social media as they became the craze. Alongside the talented Lucas Online staff, we brought Star Wars into the digital age on Twitter, Facebook, Wikia, and more in an official capacity. After leading a dozen digital marketing campaigns, I lead the team who built the multiple-award-winning LEGO Star Wars III website, which garnered us almost a dozen awards, from a Webby for Online Game of the Year to Game Marketing awards for both family website and community experience. It was also notably the first official deployment of Star Wars content into the cloud, paving the way for the rest of the company.Then I made the leap to Pandora, and joined Kathy Franklin and the amazing team at Lightstorm as VP of Digital Franchise. There I was able to shepherd the franchise digitally during the bridge period between films, sign some of the largest game deals ever signed, and ultimately make the move after four years to Starbreeze, where I took over the virtual reality development. After two years and a Tribeca Film Festival win, I quit my day job to be a dad, and soon to start my own production company.

Coinos is an open source bitcoin web wallet, point of sale, ecommerce marketplace and exchange platform. Development started in Vancouver in September 2012 as a way to provide local merchants with a convenient way to accept bitcoin payments.The feature set has grown over the years to accomodate a wide variety of use cases with the goal of making it as easy as possible for anyone to get started using Bitcoin quickly, cheaply, and securely.Anyone can download the source code and host their own instance of the platform backed by their own bitcoin, liquid or lightning nodes, or reach out and we'll gladly set this up for you.Once signed in, you can create both custodial and non-custodial wallets within your account. The default custodial wallet allows funds to be deposited on any of the bitcoin, liquid or lightning networks and seamlessly withdrawn over any other network without any conversion process or fee.Using a non-custodial wallet means keys are generated client-side in your browser so we never have access to the funds. Transactions from these accounts are subject to on-chain transaction fees and Lightning Network payments are not supported but we advise using this account type or a paper wallet for storing larger amounts.Accounts denominated in USDt and LCAD stablecoins and other Liquid assets are also supported.Intra-account transfers between custodial wallets of different users on our server are completely free, instant, and unlimited.
