Most Interested In
Right now, I am most interested in the nexus point between gaming and healthcare.
Drawing engagement value from games and applying it to wellness. Drawing back from healthcare and wellness services and delivering that to gamers and influencers from around the world.
Not Interested In
Businesses that do not strive to employ cutting edge technologies do not interest me. Beyond that, I have a very eclectic sense of what is neat ;)
