My guest today is Creigh (https://twitter.com/CrayCreigh), known as Cray Creigh or Dr. Nifty in the verse. He is a thought-leader, community builder, and top-notch trader in the NFT space. He is best known for identifying many top-tier projects early in their life cycles, including Punks, BAYC, Cyberkongz, Cool Cats, Doodles, Proof, and more. He currently leads the Block Party Labs community, and is involved with several others. His role models in the space include Kevin Rose (Proof), Tim Ferriss, and Zeneca (ZenAcademy). He has done this while being a full-time active duty service member living overseas. 

He intends to build out his community and fortify his place in the NFT elite. Creigh welcomes all to join him in his quest for NFT and crypto success.
