The most notable of these projects includes Project Zipper, a national data exchange study comprised of 13 major brands and retailers, and the CHIP Project, a blockchain proof-of-concept for serialized data exchange between global supply chain stakeholders. He has also acquired multiple industry certifications centered around software architecture and cybersecurity for blockchain-based solutions, with a focus on enterprise-grade applications.
