I'm a huge nerd.

And proud of it. I have an economics background and an interest in Web 3 infrastructure and cryptoeconomic design. I believe crypto protocols can help grow the web by allowing more people to transact in more ways and more frequently online, in new markets we haven’t even begun to explore. I blog fairly regularly on Medium and also authored Northzone’s crypto Investment thesis.
