(OTCQB: TFVR) (the "Company"), a software development company focused on virtual reality content, today announced Joe Abrams has been appointed as strategic consultant and to the Company's Board of Advisors.

Mr. Joe Abrams continued, "I liken the virtual reality space to the personal computer software space in the 80's and social media in the late 90's and 2000's. Sometimes leading edge technologies are hard to comprehend before it becomes imbedded in our every day lives. TimefireVR's platform uniquely integrated social interaction and learning with exploration for hours that is unlike anything I have seen in the virtual reality space. I look forward to sharing my experiences and business acumen with John, Jeffrey and the entire TimefireVR team."
