A project as serious and ambitious as VIVA requires a solid team in order to succeed. While primarily a technological endeavor, we understand that we can only achieve our goal of providing longterm recurring income to millions of Vivos through a concerted effort on all fronts.

For this reason, we have assembled a world class team of four founders supported by an extensive community of VIVA enthusiasts. After the ICO we will be expanding the team to assure the longterm viability of the VIVAconomy.

Below is a summary of our core leadership team:

Dawn Parker Waites is our CEO and mama bear of the team. She has a long background in business including the property management, mortgage, and sustainability industries. She has been involved in political and technology think tanks since the late 90s and has taught at San Diego State University in the Green Energy Management program. She published a respected online news portal, San Diego Loves Green, that was bought by a public company in 2012. Dawn has been a thought leader and political activist in Southern California, and was an organizer in the Occupy Wall Street movement in California.

Alec Hahn is our COO and oversees our Mexican and European operations. Alec is the spirit of the team and since early 2010, has been involved with Bitcoin. He has worked with several Blockchain technologies including Bitcoin42 and BitHalo. His work as a media designer has been commissioned and displayed at the Museum of London, Deutsches Museum in Munich and Cineteca Nacional in Mexico City. Alec has written, directed, produced, photographed and edited various short films that took him to film festivals around the world. As a freelancer he worked for the Rachel Carson Center in Munich. Alec also is a co-founder of Earthivism, a non-profit organization that produces Imperfectu: International Film and Gender Studies Festival in Tijuana with his wife Josephina.

We believe that the injustices and inequalities in our society are largely the fruit of a powerful cartel of greedy financiers determined to protect the archaic structures of a financial system implemented largely in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The time has come for a new paradigm. The time has come for VIVA.
