Coo @ Peeka Vr
Through and through, I'm an entrepreneur.
Growing up, I was always fascinated by the next new technology from computers to mp3 players to gaming consoles and now by XR and blockchain.
As a 1st generation American my parents struggled getting access to traditional financial products which is what drew me to the paradigm of crypto and DeFi when AAVE initially launched back in 2017. About 18 months ago, I bought my first NFT and was fascinated by the fusion of artwork, community, utility, and collectability. Being engaged in multiple NFT communities over the last 2 years ultimately fueled me to create and launch my own NFT & DAO for people in the vintage clothing community.
In 2016 I co-founded Peeka VR, the mobile platform where children read, learn, and play in Virtual Reality. As the COO/CFO, I'm in charge of leading our team of 10+ engineers, developers, 3D artists, and programmers as we define how children's content in VR should function. I have initiated and closed $500,000+ worth of sales via unique partnerships, secured 30+ major content licenses, and crafted innovative first-of-their-kind XR partnerships with significant global brands such as T-Mobile, HarperCollins, and Mattel (Barbie & Thomas The Tank Engine). I have successfully articulated an industry leading production timeline and project costs for mobile VR experiences. Having only raised a small Seed round, we've been able to achieve tremendous success through crafting deals with T-Mobile and HarperCollins. We have grown to over 6,000 users in 9 different countries with an average amount of time spent in the app of over 24 minutes per user.
As much fun as I've had working in XR, I've become obsessed with the potential blockchain technology offers and have focused my efforts on exploring web3 companies/protocols that best suit my passions and strengths. I'm primarily seeking Leadership, Product/Project Manager, and Business Development roles, but am open to Strategy and Analyst roles as well. I'm a huge sports fan (go Lakers and Chelsea FC), semi-casual gamer, and vintage clothing collector.
My career path has been extremely unique and full of ups and downs, but it allowed me to grow into the person I am today and I'm confident in what I can bring to any company. I've developed a leadership style that empowers each team member by providing clear structure and expectations while allowing autonomy between teams.
I appreciate you reading my bio and I'm excited to connect and talk further!
