What I am up to now1

I have just started this blog and aim to write on here weekly.

I’ve quit working in the hospitality industry in January 2018, and we are since trying to build our companies in the fintech sector. I’m using the word fintech loosely here, for lack of a better word, as we’re focus on lending, borrowing, investing and managing funds in some China-specific businesses as well as blockchain- and crypto-related projects.

Late last year we moved offices and I can now bike to work everyday. I enjoy the hour on the bike a lot, and hope this helps keeping me fit.

We’re going to Shengsi over the Chinese New Year holiday on 5th of February. While we’re there we’ll be looking for a location to open Eli’s Ice Cream shop for the summer. I hope I can add proprietaro del gelateria to my resume next year ;-)
