I am an American living in France, with a current focus on building next generation financial technology using cryptocurrency. In my free time I try to contribute to the development of Bitcoin Core, Lightning Network, and other open source projects that I find interesting.

I attended college at Virginia Tech, dual majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics, then earned a Master's in Applied Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University while working full time at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. My work there focused on sensor exploitation, real-time video and image processing, and tracking algorithms for radar and video.

In 2015 I set off to explore the world, living in in Mongolia, Georgia (not the USA one), England, and now finally settling in the French Alps. During all this time I have worked remotely in web development, devops, systems architecture, and project management for various startups in the US and abroad. I don't bound myself to any programming stack or role, but thrive when trying to solve complex problems.

When I am not working I enjoy exploring mountains, fermenting things, and sleeping in on rainy days.

Work-life balance is my jam.
