bill “bilcasso” kwok
CEO & co-founder
Born and raised in the small rural town of Echuca, Australia. Bill worked in his family restaurant for as long as he can remember, from a young age he loved drawing, cars, motorbikes, computers and getting into good old fashioned trouble. Having typical Asian parents, they told him if he wasn’t a lawyer, doctor or banker he was a failure, he became a private banker but deep down knew it was never his passion.
In 2018 he arrived alone to NYC with one suitcase, backpack and hustled his way into the blockchain and music industry. It was here that he rekindled his passion as a creative and co-founded Ei.

I believe emerging technologies will challenge our known perspectives and will unleash humanity's potential, paving the way for critical advancements to our environment and society. I combine this passion with 18 years on Wall Street and Capital Markets along with half a year of experience in the Creative industries.
While my creative talent peaks with my rendition of The Little Mermaid’s Part of Your World, that lack of talent and experience allows me to approach these industries with a truly objective and unadulterated perspective. My humble opinion is that these creative industries are completely bass-ackwards. The reason why these industries exist is because of the talent and passion of the content creators, yet they are typically treated the worst in the process.
The velocity of innovation provides Content Creators with the ability to better create, control, distribute and monetize their content. We’re here to help you do that, so let’s do it.

laura “pinchy” su
Laura is your everyday avid playlist curator with a passion for innovative technologies that bridges the gap between artist and consumer. One song, one piece of art, one performance can change a person’s life or perspective. Creatives should be able to be fairly compensated and have control over the content that does just that. She combines that passion with a background in Software Sales for a Fortune 100 company to drive a new wave of content engagement.
By day, Laura is a business woman, but by night and in her free time, she’s a huge sports enthusiast, amateur foodie, world traveler, and always enjoys a good dog meme.
