BIO

I like to think of myself as a creative individual whose passion is to explore ideas, tell stories, build things & live life.

My parents named me after they watched Blood-sport with Jean-Claude Van Damme, who was a total rockstar in Eastern Europe after the fall of communism.

Graduating from the University of Calgary B.A Political Science program, I now enjoy learning about humanity, tech, marketing and entreprenuership. My business journey started with my 'DJ career' in various nightclubs around Calgary. Yep, I can turnip da beets.

After graduating UofC, I got laid off from my cushy marketing job, co-founded and bootstrapped my first media company, what is now 2C. Then we pivoted with Renderr.io, a cool side project. Now, we're bootstrapping the third which is called pronto.

Somehow, in 2016/17, a friend got into blockchain technology, crypto mining and the whole decentralized movement. We all shortly followed, haha. This led us to form bitMonkey, a safe, easy and tangible way to get involved in cryptocurrency.
