I’m the co-founder of Llama, a contributor DAO that works with the leading protocols on smart contract upgrades, treasury management, and analytics. Our customers include Aave, Nouns, Uniswap, dYdX, Lido, and Maker.

We are contributing to a new economy powered by open-source software, permissionless capital formation, and liquid labor.

Contributing in crypto feels like worldbuilding; you and your friends operate under the premise that magic exists.

I value authenticity, humor, and resonance.

Few things I treasure ~

  • my old car, which I’ve driven to exhaustion
  • my cap, which reads, “the mountains are calling and I must go”
  • my notebook that has a record of my random ideas, including solving sleep, building a school entirely run by children, and replacing price determined by demand and supply

I play basketball, run, and make memes. I go on long drives to wherever my car takes me, which is often along roads with trees.

I like taking social risk – smiling at a stranger before they smile back, supporting someone with a weak social network, riffing on an unfamiliar ideology, traveling with a new person, and talking to internet strangers.

The Beginning of Infinity by David Deutsch has been foundational to my understanding of how knowledge is created and progress is made. It also serves as a personal philosophy. Anything that isn’t impossible according to the laws of physics is possible, with sufficient knowledge.
