background

during the summer of 2020 i discovered bitcoin and it completely changed my life in so many ways. one of which is that it prompted me to give coding a try. after discovering how much i enjoy coding, i began working hard at teaching myself the fundamentals of web development.

my goal was to become a bitcoin developer so that i could focus all of my resources towards what i believe is the most important project of our time. i am now happy to say that i contribute to open source projects and work as a bitcoin dev full-time!

for the past 3 years i have been mainly building applications using the lightning network. the projects i have created and contributed to have had a meaningful impact on bitcoin adoption globally. this has given me the opportunity to appear on podcasts and speak at conferences worldwide about my areas of expertise.

as a team member of many innovative startups i played a key role in taking features through the full development cycle and shipping high-quality, pixel-perfect, user-facing products to production.

all of my code is open source and can be verified on github. this is my proof of work.

i'd like to thank everyone who has helped me along this incredible journey so far, i've met many kind and generous people along the way.

contact

i am always open to chatting with interesting people who share my values and work on projects that align with our mission. here are the best ways to get a hold of me:
