August 24, 2023

Themes: Bitcoin, Lightning Network, nostr, censorship-resistance, commmunity-building, fatherhood


  • Starting a new chapter as Head of Sales at Lightning Network startup, Amboss
  • Serving as an advisor to other startups building on Bitcoin and Lightning, including Clovyr, Orange Pill App, and Synota
  • Investing time and energy in the fast-growing Nashville Bitcoin community as part of Bitcoin Park
  • Working to be present, focused, and the best father and husband I can be



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


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