Working with Riley and the Salish Center for Sustainable Fishing Methods was the perfect opportunity for Eli to fulfill two of his most important heartfelt values. Being on the leading edge of technology and being of benefit to others, specifically helping our children and protecting our natural resources. Eli is excited to work on NFTs for the Salish Center. He still retains his love of taking risks and his roguish attitude towards forging ahead into unknown territory.
