Please tell us about your role

I assist with regulatory, monitoring, and compliance matters, including development of robust but practical compliance policies and procedures, jurisdictional analysis, in-depth risk assessments and managing regulatory audits and inspections.
What attracted you to the position at SolutionsHub?
During my time with Unikrn I had the opportunity to work with the SolutionsHub team. I really liked their professionalism and great work environment. With them I have a career growth opportunity and to learn more about the gaming industry from a different perspective.
Can you tell us about your career background?
I have more than 20 years’ experience in the eGaming industry. During this time, I have worked with companies offering a broad range of products and from different countries. This has helped me understand the diversity of effective business models within the eGaming industry.
I started in a part-time role as a customer service agent many years ago to help pay my way through university.
From there I had the opportunity to work between different departments such as accounting, deposits, payments, odds trading, fraud and security.
It was in my role at Unikrn that I combined my work with my studies in project management most effectively, and found a passion for risk analysis and compliance.
Can you tell us about your life away from work?
I am married and we have one daughter. I’ve been passionate about cars and motorbikes all my life – if it has an engine, I like it.
Since I was very young, I have been a huge video game enthusiast. I spent a lot of hours playing Digger and Frogger on classic consoles.
Around 2000, as more information became available over the internet, and you could find short notes and if lucky, short videos of tournaments from former arcade games such as Fatal Fury: King of Fighters and Street Fighter.
This helped me in my professional life when I had the chance to work with different esports betting products (Dota, CSGO, League of Legends and most recently Valorant), where knowing the environment and target markets was an advantage.
I like various genres including open-world action-adventure, shooters, and multiplayer online battle arenas. I’m a big fan of the Assassin’s Creed Saga, God of War and Call of Duty. In the last few years I have been Destiny. I enjoy watching live tournaments, like the Dota International but mostly from Spanish streamers.
Can you tell us something about you that not many people know?
My university degree is in Social Anthropology and Archaeology.
