Angeleen

I am a lover of solidity, NFTs, country music, hip hop and my family. I might not have conventional wisdom but I possess unconventional humor. I am fan of cryptocurrency but I am believer of emerging technology such as blockchain and what it can do to help solve realistic and fundamental issues. I am a blockchain developer, data wrangler and marketing strategist. I am also a wife, a mom to a spunky boy,  a baby girl and a stepmom to my bonus daughter. I like short walks on the beach, karaoke and camping. My life motto is that we might not have it all together but together we have it all.
