Hi , let's talk about why this page exists. Statistically speaking there is sufficient evidence on personal sites, your about page is often the most visited. So, I'm mostly saving you clicks here.
I'm a technologist at heart empowering family & friends, customers, and even strangers introducing them to tools to automate the mundane tasks for the more adventures parts in their daily lives. No seriously, tell me what you're working on and I'll find you a proven app or workflow that can sufficiently reduce your clicks per task. While software isn't the only avenue, it's certainly most exciting. In practise, I spend most days envisioning, designing and writing code, spearheading technical initiatives, angel investing and running the fun parts of a family owned construction business. I've spent the past half a decade working at the intersection of web3 and developer tools.
My first experience, albeit marginal, was when a good friend introduced me to bitcoin in 2015 who had envisioned to build a platform that would bring fans to unlock music tracks through micropayments. At the time, bitcoin payments were a few cents. We've come a long way. What hasn't changed is our ability to make payments and enjoy doing things together, cheaply, privately and without some platform changing the rules once they've become established.
In 2018, I joined a young herd at BisonTrails as their first frontend engineer that were early pioneers in fully managed blockchain infrastructure. Since the acquisition by Coinbase in early 2021 , I've continued my focus at helping externalize 0-to-1 developer products at Coinbase Cloud.
