I'm currently interested in novel applications of cryptography that enhance consumer privacy and the freedom to transact. I care deeply about funding and improving infrastructure for blockchain public goods.

I make angel investments in these areas. If you work on a related project and are in need of funding, or would just like to chat, you can reach me at


You can find my open-source projects on GitHub and some of my writing here.


I received a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Duke University, a M.S. in Computational Neuroscience from The University of Chicago, and a B.A. in Neuroscience with a minor in Math from Vanderbilt University.
