Meet our awesome pack of Dog People
I have been an Entrepreneur my entire life and a Lover of all things dog. I am a supporter of interspecies relationships in the wonder of diversity discovering intelligence. I am dedicated to helping the American culture expand its recognition and available spaces for human/dog relationships in our busy world. I have had 50+ yrs. in the dog breeding business and created the Royal Frenchel Bulldog breed. I want to lift the bar of available services, experiences and the protection of the family relationship/ownership of dogs.
I was inspired to create an advanced NFT with what we have coined blockchainDNA™, an innovation which stores immutable records on the blockchain to support veterinarians in better diagnostic tools that bring immediate and timely help to generate best care of dogs in emergent situations such as being stolen or ill.
In my many years of service in the dog industry, I have heard repeated experiences where customer’s dogs died and how much they suffered not having a community to share that loving transition in… idDOG will meet this need moving beyond it to help dog lovers open into a world of metaverse fun together, learning, experiencing and playing with their 2 and 4 legged friends.
Community is everything to me and the idDOG team. Enhancing the open community spirit of dogs in our daily lives, at home, at work, and at play is my dream. And I am a bulldog!
I love dogs. I am located just outside of Washington DC and have lived all over the world. I travel extensively and enjoy meeting new people and seeing new places. I am a Pet lover and lifelong dog owner. I currently have two rescues; both are half German Shepherd/half kangaroo and we love them and all of the smiles they bring.
I have been an entrepreneur all my life. I am currently the head of multiple businesses focused on international services, security, and creative projects dedicated to personal relationships and society. I am directly responsible for maintaining and operating millions of dollars for clients and projects on National and International scales. I lead business development teams and have spent years managing large resources, personnel, and everything associated (contracts, budgets, program management, logistics, technical, etc.) I can manage large or small projects and programs and have been successful for decades with all of the associated duties involved.
My best asset is the ability to surround myself with smarter people.
I enjoy learning and sharing and tackling large challenges.
I believe NFTs and Crypto are the future and I have been investing in the space since 2015. I think the next wave of technological advancement and societal change will be on the blockchain and I am eager to stay involved and ride that wave.
In my spare time, I like construction and new technology design. I enjoy spending time and energy on building an independent future and I believe in the value of networking, long-term strategies, and interpersonal relationships.
