Hey everyone and great to meet you :)
My name is Toni Lane Casserly, or as my friends call me, TLC.
This post will be a bit informal, because I'd like to think of steem as a community of friends. Be prepared for me to be less of the atypical executive and more of that cool chick who played video games under her desk in high school while reading batman comics and making better grades than the kids who studied ;)
That's my face.
That's me with Richard Branson.
That's me being featured in a magazine alongside the CEO of Credit Suisse, the founder of Burning Man, the Vice Minister of Finance in Panama, and a bunch of other amazing people.
(read the full magazine here: https://issuu.com/st.gallensymposium/docs/st_gallen_symposium_magazine_46)
I'm a pretty lucky lady, y'all.
My first piece was intended to be "Bitcoin Is A Network Of Peace for the Islamic State", but I wanted to take the time out to introduce myself and update you guys on a few of the contributions I've made to the industry already.
I was the second employee at ChangeTip (thanks, Nick!)
The first ever CEO and co-founder of CoinTelegraph (because if bitcoin is going to be called sketchy, we might as well go all in on that joke)
A consultant for Tether and Mycelium (amazing teams, so fortunate to contribute)
And an advisor / partner / board member at 10+ companies, including:
I'm also a free-market philanthropist, so after using bitcoin to do disaster relief funding during the ebola crisis, I created Kids Compassion. We give kids who lost their families to ebola the opportunity to have a home, an education, and financial freedom / economic opportunity when they graduate from our program.

If you want to hear the story behind it, check out this slide deck: http://www.slideshare.net/tonilanec/blockchain-for-human-rights-and-activism?qid=de4ca008-6e13-445c-acd6-9dff427d32ce&v=&b=&from_search=3
Currently, I'm helping a few massive people learn more about the blockchain and working on a few secret projects that I can't talk about yet :)
If you know anyone that needs a little (or a lot!) of TLC (Toni Lane Casserly, my full name), feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the contact page on my website www.tonilane.com.
Great to meet y'all <3
I can't wait to get to know this community better!
All the love,
