🎒🌎👁🔑Backpacker, Web developer & open web enthusiast, privacy and encryption advocate. Recovering techno-utopian. Idealist.


In ‘04 I was employed by a series of technology concerns doing business as a software engineer, as a specialist in the production of web and mobile applications. I begin experimenting with Bitcoin toward the end of 2012, where I divided my time between taming web applications and analyzing Bitcoin. I attended M.65 Blockchain Technology class at the MIT Media Lab in the autumn of 2015. About a year later I agreed to give all of my time to FinTech; and shortly afterwards I left Nara Logics, and moved over to Cinch Financial in Boston. I have been there ever since.

I was married in July, 2014, to my wife, whom I had met while living in Somerville, in 2010.

Occasionally I get away from Boston for a few days, to attend the meeting of some Meetup society or for a trip to the mountains. Regularly during the spring and summer and fall I get “up river” or into the woods on weekends and holidays to make up for the hours which I have to waste in the office and workshop.

I never have had time nor strength to take any part in public life, but I have managed to do a good deal of open source development work in connection with technical problems on the web and with the occasional rabble-rousing with various social justice groups. Once in a while I publish an article on my blog or on Medium.com. I belong to twitter, as well as to others online, and I am also a member of the Ember.js Meetup Group of Boston. Social clubs do not appeal to me.
