What I'm Focused on Now

Updated March 6, 2021

Themes: decentralization, data privacy, Bitcoin, markets, monetary policy & history


  • Building out supply- and demand-side partnerships at Dataswift for user-owned personal data marketplaces
  • Developing new education curriculum and content for our developer program
  • Putting my money where my privacy-focused mouth is: completing my move off Google and Facebook to products like ProtonMail and Micro.blog
  • Traveling and exploring Morocco


  • Deep-diving into the Roam universe. It took me a while to get into it, but I’m now sold. It’s changing how I capture and connect ideas.
  • Studying and experimenting with a host of new decentralized tech, including Nostr messaging and Sovryn trading and lending
  • Bitcoin’s Discreet Log Contracts (DLCs) and Schnorr Signatures


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


My podcast selection is Bitcoin-heavy these days, mixed with emerging technology and macro trends. And always new music.
