I'm an investor and builder focused on crypto enabled markets and technologies.
I'm most passionate about how decentralized networks will redefine modern institutions including financial markets, governance, and social networking. Outside of crypto, I enjoy learning more about investing, the game of basketball, and discovering new music. I consider myself to be an above average armchair economist, not sure if my friends would agree.
I've been immersed in the crypto economy since I first learned about Bitcoin as an undergraduate student. Since then, I helped build Synapse one of the largest cross-chain messaging bridge protocols, worked on the institutional business at Coinbase, led DeFi investments at Coinbase Ventures, grew some of the first DeFi lending markets at Dharma, and published Bitcoin research with Bitcoin Magazine. I'm also an active angel in the space.
I'm working on sharing my research and thoughts more actively.
