What is your background briefly?
I hold a Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng) degree from the Department of Computer Engineering, University of Benin. During my university days, I founded SMSLeak, a bulk SMS service and gateway provider that enabled users send bulk messages online at a cheap rate. In India, as an international exchange student in Manipal Institute of Technology, I wrote programs for image processing, feature selection and representation in a Research and Development environment. I was a founding member of Codev, a student club that equipped protégés with foundational knowledge on software and embedded systems programming.
I have been obsessed with the concept of a decentralized Internet since my first experience with writing smart contracts for the Ethereum blockchain.
Does it seem like a logical background to what you do now?
I say yes to that.
1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
As Chief Technology Officer of Cura Network, I am committed to leading the long-term technology vision of this project. We are building a platform that is actually usable by the non-technical populace. Our design goals are geared toward maximum inclusion of all entities; even Lower and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) with dysfunctional health systems. I will leverage existing technologies while pushing for thorough research and development that deliver sustainable software systems.
Why did you get involved with this ICO?
I got involved to raise funds for scaling Cura Network platform on a global level. I believe decentralized systems are disrupting the way data and identity are shared. I love to bring a project that makes healthcare more accessible and safe to thousands of users.
Why do you think it is such a powerful idea?
I have been involved in this vision from the very conception of the idea. By providing smooth interoperability across stakeholders in global healthcare and serving as a unified platform for powering health service applications, I think Cura Network is a solid foundation for inclusive health systems of tomorrow. I believe this project is worth every resource it gets.

Anything else you’d like to add / we should have asked?
Hobbies? I love travelling, dancing, swimming, and watching non-fiction movies.
PS: I think I’d implement a working version of the game network in 2016 movie Nerve
