What I'm focused on now

January 8, 2024

Themes: Bitcoin, Lightning Network, investing, jurisdictional arbitrage, longevity, fatherhood


  • Leading sales and partnerships at Lightning payment ops startup, Amboss
  • Advising and angel investing in other Bitcoin startups, recently Orange Pill App, Relai, Synota, Vida, and Zaprite
  • Actively participating in and supporting the nostr protocol’s evolution
  • Working to regain balance by investing in my fitness and longevity
  • Enjoying what has shaped up to be my son’s terrific two’s


  • Digging back into Fedimint and Covenants as the Bitcoin layer 2 scaling debates heat up again
  • Experimenting with numerous Large Language Models and their underlying development


I keep a handful of books on the go—a few non—fiction and a sci-fi selection for nighttime reading when my toddler permits.


My podcast selection is Bitcoin-heavy, mixed with macroeconomic trends and privacy, and delivered via the Lightning-powered Fountain app. And always new music.
