Me in a few paragraphs

So I've decided to dedicate my career to applying technology to education. I'm a Computer Scientist and programmer so I see technology as a natural way to innovate in education. I'm half Spanish, half South African and I was born in England.

We solve the areaccreditation problem in online learning: employers are reluctant to accept online course completion certificates because 1) they don't know how hard you worked and 2) they can't be sure it was you that did the work. We solve this by reimagining the idea of a certificate. If instead of being simply a name, grade and institution, you could 'open a window' into a
