I’m the Founder and Architect of Dragonchain and Den.social. I have over 20 years of experience in software architecture focusing on security and scalability. I’ve created and led multiple technology startups since the mid-1990s working with organizations such as Lockheed Martin, FBI, DoD, Overstock, Coinbase, Symbiont, & the Walt Disney Company. As blockchain was starting to make itself known, I immediately recognized we had to find a way that businesses could leverage the technology. Most projects were trying to get businesses to fit into a blockchain box. As a software architect, I knew the best way to foster adoption was to find a way to scale blockchain technology to real businesses' requirements and to allow interoperability with their systems already in place. To do that we built a platform of capabilities where a business can build any solution to their real-world problems.

In my opinion, the most unpleasant part about a Walt Disney World vacation starts with the dread of Magic Kingdom. I appreciate the incredible classic attractions at The Magic Kingdom such as Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. The issue causing the horror centers around parking as an off-site guest. Now, if you read this thinking I need to stay on-site, then getting to/from Magic Kingdom rates as a good reason. The key source of dread rests ominously across the lagoon from the Magic Kingdom known as the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC). Located near the TTC resides the Magic Kingdom parking lots. When you finally park your car in a spot, guests then must get to the TTC for transportation to the Magic Kingdom via monorail, shuttle, or bus.
