Curriculum Vitae


Professional Statement

I’m a product wizard whose one true love is Bitcoin.

I’ve supported global foreign exchange product launches; produced regulatory compliance training; spearheaded blockchain protocol governance projects; coordinated FOSS product research; built a first-of-its-kind, enterprise-grade blockchain SaaS platform; and I am currently building the Digital Asset Listing team of a brand-new regulated cryptocurrency exchange. I’ve led dozens of engineers and product pros scattered around the globe, built world-class digital products, know the crypto space inside and out, and have a thing for nurturing relationships with stakeholders from the mailroom to the c-suite.
