Les Aker Bio

I am a computer scientist, consultant, the president and founder of an incorporated company, Gondolin, Inc., and the owner of a sole proprietorship, Les Aker Consulting. I have more than 35 years of professional experience working as a computer scientist, innovator, and disruptive technologist in advanced technology research and development.

I am currently focused on blockchain technology. The transition was a natural fit given all my years of experience designing cryptographic systems using very similar cryptographic algorithms, hashing and data encoding.

As a serial entrepreneur, my long term goal is to never be a W-2 employee in any venture where I'm not a founder, partner or in a position where I can make a significant impact on the product or service.
