    Jeff (Jihoz_Axie): Co-founder of Axie Infinity

    20 episodes into the new season... My word what a ride it's been!

    This week's episode is special... I sit down with Jeff (Jihoz), Co-founder of the wildly successful web3 game called Axie Infinity! This game has generated ~$1.65b in revenue since inception in 2017 and is nearly hitting $1b this year alone. Just wait until you hear about what this game has done for the entire country of the Philippines.

    I chat with Jeff about his journey into web3, what got him excited about the space, and about the role he assumes in the future of blockchain gaming.
    Cannot wait for you to hear it!

    Eric Rubens- Renowned NFT Photographer & Engineer

    Eric is a landscape photographer who was early to Instagram back in the early days. He now boasts close to 500k followers on the platform and is a true master of his craft. If you're in the NFT community, and you've seen some amazing sunset/rise beach photos, there's a good chance they are from Eric.
    He has partnered with some major brands to capture the world and is one of the most business-savvy folks in this community that I meet. We chat about everything from his journey prior to NFTs, the role he plays helping photographers today, and how he can be the bridge to show big brands how to play in this space properly in the future.

    MIGUEL "GORILLA" LOPEZ- Character Designer & NFT Artist

    Miguel "GORILLA" Lopez is a graphic artist that specializes in character design. Some of his most notable work was designing characters for both the Simpsons & Family Guy. Since then, he has gone to create his own IP that has none other than Disney has tried to poach, however, Miguel has much bigger plans! His vision is to build a metaverse that includes his work, as well as open the door for digital collaboration opportunities for all artists who want to participate.

    Miguel has one of the most inspiring stories I've ever heard, the grit, determination, and relentless hustle from this man sends chills down my spine as I type this. Growing up with not a lot of resources, he fought his way to get his and make a living off what he loves. I won't spoil the rest, you'll just have to listen to this 3 HOUR EPISODE.

    Brew a pot of coffee, not that you'll need it with Miguel's infectious upbeat energy.

    Cath Simard- Renowned Landscape Photographer & NFT Artist

    Cath Simard- Renowned Landscape Photographer & NFT Artist

    This week's episode is one that I have been ITCHING to release for quite some time now! Cath is a landscape photographer in the NFT space that has some of the most beautiful work that I've ever seen. Her insane journey, the use of blue, and her natural talent of telling the story of her work just drew me in right from the start.
    We discuss everything from her journey before NFTs, her transition into this wild space, the challenges, and the emotions she had to overcome to get to where she's at today. We discuss her controversial Free Hawaii photo, which was the first NFT photograph to be minted with a CCO (Creative Commons License). This photo was the catalyst for a much larger conversation around IP rights that I feel will shape the future in a positive light for artists everywhere.
    Towards the end, we do a little Cath appreciation and gaze at her photos as she tells the story behind a few.
    Again... I am so excited for you to hear this one, it's jam-packed with value, vibes, blue, and of course, gm.

    Anna McNaught- Photoshop Artist & Landscape Photographer

    Anna McNaught- Photoshop Artist & Landscape Photographer

    This week's episode is Anna Mcnaught. She is a photoshop artist, as well as a photographer in the NFT scene. A funny story about this interview is that she was one of the first artists I came across back in March when I was doing my research.  We discuss her story in great detail, from her childhood to her corporate career, the transition to photography & photoshop, and her NFT experience so far. We also share her stories behind the pieces, as well as how they make me feel.

    This is such a great episode, as Anna is super raw and transparent and dives deep into the wins and losses of her journey.
