In this light, I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. After a short stint at the NFL, I worked as a consultant for a super-regional bank in Cincinnati, Ohio. My job there was to help professional athletes find financial support in their professional career. I will soon be transitioning from a consultant role to a full-fledged partnership with one of my former clients and teammates in the liquor industry. We have developed several super premium brands targeting the wealthy, including in partnership with MetLife Stadium. However, we faced significant challenges in managing and tracking inventory. Our solution to this problem was the creation and development of VOLUM (patent pending).

VOLUM is looking for companies with disruptive business models and compelling revenue stories, favoring those with intellectual property. VOLUM has an overarching strategy to bring synergistic companies together into a portfolio that will benefit from each other or from a common infrastructure and, if possible, a single token for blockchain-based operations. ”
