    CryptoClear is dedicated to providing institutional-quality investment services in the cryptocurrency market. We aim to build trust and confidence by using a rigorous assessment framework to certify investable cryptocurrencies. Our quantitative and automated process identifies scams, inactive tokens, and fraudulent activities in real-time.


    We evaluate cryptocurrencies based on several criteria: algorithm soundness, platform robustness, security vulnerabilities, liquidity, price volatility, and energy efficiency. Additionally, we use machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) to analyze transactions on public ledgers. This analysis helps detect potential fraud by monitoring the transaction network, market microstructure, ownership structure, and mining activities.

    The Business of Creative Enterprises

    Director & Executive-In-Residence

    Boston, MA

    2015 - 2016



    The major in the Business of Creative Enterprises is among the first of its kind in the country. It integrates Emerson’s strong foundation in communication and the arts to help students prepare to be leaders and managers in the creative economy.


    The program draws its faculty and courses from Emerson’s departments of Marketing Communication, Visual & Media Arts, Performing Arts, Communication Studies, and Writing, Literature & Publishing. In addition to real-world training in communication and the arts, they will work with industry leaders to develop a unique creative voice and business acumen in a collaborative and supportive environment.



    • Developed and launched a $2.6M new program, the Business of Creative Enterprises (BCE) on a shoestring budget. Used design thinking techniques and emerging technology to transform a notebook of ideas into a fully-staffed and fully-functional program that attracted 400+ applicants (44 of whom were accepted) – all within a year.
    • As Executive-in-Residence (Professor of Practice), I taught five courses in the marketing department and mentored a dozen students who wanted to create their own majors. Also led the committee that developed the first two courses and collaborated on curricula for other classes.
    • Gained buy-in from disparate stakeholders including Board of Overseers, three deans, and six chairs. Facilitated meetings to find common ground, contribute to program’s success and find ways to partner on courses and projects.
    • Obtained extensive media coverage including NPR, The Boston Globe, and numerous other media outlets. This was one aspect of a multi-channel marketing campaign planned with Admissions and Marketing that resulted in 400+ applicants.
    • Partnered with leaders, businesses and institutions in the innovation community (e.g., MIT, Olin College and Berklee).
