I recently co-founded Addenda. The vast majority of my free time is spent exploring the possibility of utilizing Blockchain technology as a means to create an immutable audit trail for theinsurance industry. Before that, I worked as a loss adjuster and civil engineer in the UAE, Qatar, Germany, and Jordan.
