TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF
Work wise I'm the Founder of Wearable World, a media, technology, and accelerator company focused on Wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) space. With over 12 years of technical and product experience with such companies as Live Nation, Ticketmaster, Eventup, TechZulu. Personal wise, I'm a pretty rad guy who enjoys a ballgame in the summer, the crisp cold mountain air in the winter and a tasty beer during a football game in the fall.
WHY ARE YOU PARTICIPATING IN THIS COMPETITION?
I'm truly inspired by what Hackcancer and the team around it has continued to do for cancer research. Their hard work and dedication is a perfect example and motivation for the rest of us that there's a role for each of us to contribute. Wether it's by lending a hand to help in the effort, educating or through donations. I've had family and friends who've experience hardships with cancer, and thanks to the research done, they were able to see another day.
