I'm an American (EEUU) by birth, but certainly a mutt by ethnicity. I prefer the Southern Hemisphere nowadays, and I try to spend time on at least 3 continents per year, in more than a few different countries. While there I explore intriguing social, investment, business and lifestyle opportunities. I've been involved in everything from hydroponic farming operations in the tropics, to Internet marketing. I've tried my hand as a "professional" stock trader, financed start-ups, traded bananas in Peru, real estate in Panama, high-finance in Uruguay and worked with one of the first Vietnamese companies to list its shares publicly. I enjoy travel, but much prefer the Four Season’s to a hut among the natives – unless they’re friendly. I plan to continue traveling, exploring and digesting as much culture and diversity as I can handle. My next adventure will likely be a small, self-sustaining community somewhere far away from the madness that is most of the world. If you’re lucky I’ll tell you where it is.
I am currently a Director of ThrillCapital, we operate several Crowdfunding platforms for Sports & Entertainment. It's an exciting time to be involved in the nascent sector that is Crowdfunding and with a niche proposition, driven chiefly by something people are passionate about, we are offering something a little bit different. As the industry evolves, and legislation in different jurisdictions takes shape, we aim to capitalise on an excellent opportunity.

Dara Albright is a recognized authority, thought provoker and frequent speaker on topics relating to market structure, private secondary transactions, next-gen IPOs, P2P, FinTech and crowdfinance. Albright has held a distinguished 23 year career in IPO execution, investment banking, corporate communications, financial marketing as well as institutional and retail sales. She is a visionary who continues to introduce rising asset classes and crowd-structured financial products to the Wall Street community. Albright was one of the earliest voices covering the JOBS Act and advocating for greater democracy in the equity and credit markets. She produced the very first crowdfunding conference in January 2012 which was headlined by key JOBS Act architects: Congressman Patrick McHenry and Dave Weild. That event helped birth the crowdfinance movement and led to the establishment of the industry’s trade and leadership organizations – which she co-founded. In 2013, she co-founded LendIt, the largest and most recognized global p2p & online lending conference organization. In 2015, she co-founded FinFair, the first conference platform to feature the leadership, products and technologies driving the crowd-centric retail alternatives market. Some of the most prominent figures in the financial industry as well as the legislature continue to participate in Albright’s events. Her leading-edge articles that have helped shape the direction of the crowdfinance industry can be found on Equities.com, Crowdfund Insider, Crowdfund Beat, Seeking Alpha, Investing.com, FINalternatives and Business Insider.
