Cryptographer

Originating from California, I embarked on my professional journey at an early age of five, primarily with the Linux Kernel. Spanning over two decades, I have gained extensive experience from prestigious organizations such as Oculus Rift and Amazon Alexa, as well as progressive startups like Gravitl, Karat, and Entropy. My specialization extends across both closed and open-source industries, beginning with my early exposure to the open-source community through projects like RuneLite and SoulSplit. I have also excelled in designing embedded systems for medical-grade EEG manufacturers and developing tools for mind studies for the neuroscience department at UCSB. In the cryptocurrency arena, I have made substantial contributions to Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Ethereum, and managed one of Washington's largest crypto mines for several years. At present, I am part of the trailblazing team at Entropy, which recently secured funding of twenty-five million dollars. We are currently developing advanced threshold cryptography systems for decentralized asset custody on the blockchain. My international presence is further fortified by my bare metal colocation at nearly all Tier 1 Internet Exchange points globally. This, combined with my unique industry connections and insights into the cyber landscape, distinguishes me in the field. My unique perspective and knowledge base, refined over two decades of kernel, crypto, and security work, are highly regarded by executive leaders of U.S. organizations across various sectors.
