Growing up in Seattle Washington, a lifelong technology enthusiast, Robert cut his teeth at an early age on platforms such as the Apple II, and Commodore 64. Robert has immersed himself in most things related to technology. Robert worked as a field engineer for Fujitsu Electronics, before going back to college to complete a degree in Communication, graduating cum laude from Western Washington University. He then studied for another two years to get the necessary credits, knowledge, and training to become a Washington State licensed elementary school teacher. He then worked in the Seattle School District as a elementary school technology specialist.
After several years of successful teaching, Robert decided he would like to see more of the world and accepted a job working for a K-12 international school as a technology coordinator. International living had a life changing impact on Robert and he soon headed to Asia to pursue his dreams.
Robert has had a lifelong interest and passion for music and film. Making stop motion films with friends as early as elementary school. A self confessed vidophile, Robert voraciously consumes media, and has been interested in independent film as a way of getting something different than the typical formulaic ‘Hollywood drivel’. The 90s brought us more independent film and the internet, and with that peaked Robert’s interest in on demand video delivery.
Having conceptualized an incentivized peer to peer file sharing system in the early 2000’s, he named AVXIP, Robert was unable to solve the issues around centralized tracking systems and payment methods. The centralized tracking systems were clear targets for attack and payment systems were controlled by banking institutions and were far from providing any levels of anonymity. The evolution of cryptocurrecy, distributed computing, and blockchain has changed that. AVXIP’s evolved technology has now been developed by Resonant technology, and is being licensed to AVXChange.
With AVXChange, Robert is please to share his dream with the world. AVXChange is a marketplace which allows a small independent artist to sell their work alongside the work of major artists and studios to a world wide market. With almost no cost of entry, transparent record keeping, market leading returns, the artists will be exposed to technology and media enthusiasts and early adopters, setting trends and influencing others.
