John Watson

I am a christian, father, architect, scientist, troublemaker, executive, revisionist, investor, mentor, advisor, analyst, academic, sales guy, entrepreneur, data analyst, system administrator, product owner, evangelist, debater, gamer and sports nut… And I probably forgot a few.

I like building things that need to get big. Whether that is technology or a business, I am interested in how to scale them.

I believe in innovative business creation and operations… My approach centers around 4 foundational characteristics: Culture, Mechanisms, Architecture, and Organization. By simplifying operations and driving innovation by identifying a low cost, scalable and reliable infrastructure that can be available to everyone. I am proud to help small to large enterprises break free from the lock-in of traditional enterprise hardware and software vendors by dragging traditional Web2 culture and immersing them into Web3 innovations.

Chief Talent Officer, Partner

Rob Leland

Music has been, and will always be my passion. People will always be my purpose. For years, I tried to figure out how I could serve both masters and it finally became clear in 2016.

As a performer, my time in the music business has long passed, but my desire to elevate new music and performers is stronger than ever. I’ve always considered myself an accidental taste maker, so I stepped into the promotions space. Doing so has connected me to a great many artists, many of whom are struggling with their identity and place in life.

More than most, I understand the ‘Artist’s Dilemma.’ The ‘Artist’s Dilemma’ is a combination of behaviors and cultural expectations that occur in virtually every artist’s life, and I know how to overcome them because I was a slave to them once upon a time.

Allow me the opportunity to serve you by connecting with you where you are today, right now.

Let’s agree to be honest with each other, to be brave with each other, and enjoy a level of intimacy and focus on a higher truth than we’ve ever experienced from any other relationship.

I look forward to revitalizing your dreams with you.

Chief Visionary Officer

Sandra Krager

Helping people and businesses grow and thrive is a challenge I embrace every day. I love immersing myself in complex challenges and finding creative ways to solve them. One of my greatest gifts is the ability to inspire true collaboration and deep learning through strategic questioning and open dialogue. I’m never afraid to ask tough questions, and we always find an impactful way forward.

My life’s work is a true reflection of my core values: curiosity, impact, authenticity, and empathy. I put my heart and soul into the things I believe in, and I am uncompromising in my commitment to serve. It is my greatest joy to find innovative solutions which enhance lives. I am a creative thinker and have a passion for tailoring solutions that drive results.

My contributions include 30+ years in and around restaurants, retail, hospitality, technology, automotive, insurance, Internet Technology, philanthropy, and physical security. I have a gift for identifying new and innovative approaches for businesses, organizations, groups, and individuals to connect and thrive.

Leila Othman

Leila Akhmet-Othman was born and raised in Almaty, Kazakhstan. From early age she was interested in art: paintings, sculpture, drawings, etc. She obtained her BFA degree in painting from the Kazakh State College of Arts in Almaty, Kazakhstan with honors. In 1998 she graduated from the Kazakh State Art Academy with major in graphic design. Upon completion her studies she received the premium for the best degree project. In 2003 Leila has moved to the USA and now she is trying to introduce her art to the American public. In her early works, Leila was seeking her inspiration in myths. It is not just appeal to stories and character of different mythologies, but also an attempt to implant into their emotional-profound tissue. Leila energizes from the Universe, Space, Water, and Nature and then reflects connection between the realities and metamorphoses in her art works. Leila’s art world is full of sounds of ocean, violins, beautiful dreams and adventures.

We See Farther

Without the right vision, you're likely creating projects with hampered lifespans and probably not even thinking about Web3 protocols. The Mysterious team understands the complexities of the Web3 landscape. To that end, we build projects to spec and create depth in technology that will allow your project to thrive for years to come.

Defy Traditionalists

Most developers use old-school code and technologies that will not fit your application’s needs (we’re talking about you, MySQL). Not our crew! Mysterious developers push the envelope with technologies that most have not even begun to use. We find fast, reliable methods then apply them to your project!

Stewards of the Web

Head of the class, carrying the flag, leader of the pack–we don't care how you paint the picture. At Mysterious we strive to be the best advocates for tomorrow’s technology. Our projects are accessible on all modern devices including smart phones, tablets and screen readers. Our mission...always move forward, while leaving no one behind.


Innovate no exceptions.

At Mysterious we lead with innovation and an unrelenting drive to break the status quo. We develop anew where few have dared to go.


Always overdeliver.

Under promise and over deliver. Clients and NFT holders are destined to be pleasantly surprised. We give more than is ever expected, remembering there’s always room to be better and do better.


Inspire people.

Winston Churchill once said, “Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” Mysterious at its core strives to always push the envelope regardless of success or failure; ultimately taking a fist full of inspiration and punching the next generation in the mouth!
