Most families have that uncle or aunt who loves genealogy. The problem is, they are usually the only one passionate about it, and their precious records are in boxes in the basement. When they pass away, who will carry on the research? Who will maintain the precious records of past ancestors?

AncestorTales.com enables family history buffs to create fully custom children's books about their ancestors. Using AI, you can generate a rhyming poem about their life and watercolor illustrations. No two books are alike. The result? Make the ancestors in your family tree accessible to the next generation. Their childhood will be full of stories about Harry Potter and Elsa... why not also stories of their real life ancestors?

As a technologist, he founded the edtech startup Digital Literacy Contest and was invited to speak at universities throughout North America like Cornell, Brown, and Northwestern.

Recently he founded Infinite Game Ventures Inc, an innovation studio and consultancy.
