I'm an student in UC Berkeley's M.E.T. Program majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Business Administration. For my professional history, feel free to click on my resume or LinkedIn above.
Currently, my primary interests lie in crypto. Developments in cryptographic primitives and game theoretic mechanisms have led to novel economic systems like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Leveraging incentive schemes made possible by these systems have led to a new open financial system, decentralized governance, unique crypto-native business models, and interesting alternatives to fiat currencies. I spend most of my time thinking about these topics, as well as the infrastructure needed to scale them.
I'm also broadly interested in novel technology. I've had the good fortune of spending time with some amazing early-stage venture funds, and I'm interested in the continued development of software applications and infrastructure, particularly as they relate to industries/sectors that are redefining existing paradigms. This includes startups working on the passion economy, open-source software (OSS), defensetech, data privacy, and others.
More generally, I'm interested in civilizational immortality, and the institutions need to get there. Along these lines, I've been spending time exploring the following:
In addition to the above, I've been meaning to learn more about longevity biotech and space exploration; if you have any good resources on these you'd like to share, please send them my way. I occasionally write and plan to publish some of my works on this site once they're done.
More informally, I love playing/watching tennis, Formula One, Spikeball, and poker. I'm also an amateurish foodie and enjoy exploring restaurants; here's my favorite so far. I'm an avid reader of sci-fi and a huge gaming and e-sports fan.
