An experienced audio engineer, and owner of full service post production recording studio on the Jersey shore, Twenty Seven Sounds Inc. Ironically audio is my genesis block into blockchain development, stemming from my studies in small electrical circuits and DSP technologies. A Blockchain & Smart Contract developer utilizing the Solidity programming language to build secure, best of practice, Decentralized Applications (DApps) such as Crypto-Wallets (time-locked, multi-sig, savings, etc), Decentralized Exchanges (DEX), Blockchain Scanners, NFTs, NFT Marketplaces, and NFT Universe(s). Having a background in business, audio, and the business of music as well as its supportive services, combined with a sound economics foundation gives me a unique insight and ability to identify & produce solutions where major opportunities intersect and reside.
