Why would I leave Netflix to sell jpegs on the Internet?

I’m sure that’s what some people might find themselves asking, given how much I’ve enjoyed my role there over the years. Aside from being colleagues with some of the best minds in media & entertainment, some highlights include:

  • Working with David Fincher, Tim Miller and Neil Kellerhouse on a special feature for Love, Death & Robots

So what’s this about selling jpegs on the internet?

I’ve co-founded a company called BLOCK::BLOCK along with Bart Decrem and Mark Mayo– and currently our ‘products’ are NFTs. Digital tokens and collectibles, which some people jokingly refer to as ‘jpegs’ — as the surface artifact of what actually represents a new form of digital ownership enabled by the blockchain.

Our vision for BLOCK::BLOCK, which I’ve helped inform given my background, is —

To Build Franchise IP for the Metaverse

We’ve only just started and we’ve already posted a couple of success stories:

  • In May, we launched MeebitsDAO — as an example of the type of communities we want to build, communities that supercharge the franchises we hope to build. Within a couple of weeks of opening our membership, we raised over $500k for the treasury.

Given the current opportunity in this space, it seemed too good for me not to take the leap and join as a co-founder and equal partner in BLOCK::BLOCK.
