Bitcoin evangelist, Programmer, and Community Director of the Counterparty Foundation. I'm a lead organizer of the South Florida Bitcoin group, a lecturer, and the proud owner of two amazing cats. I write for Bitcoin Magazine, and contribute to Let's Talk Bitcoin. This site is snapshot of what's going on in my life, and a scratchpad for ideas. If you want to get a hold of me, twitter is your best route, but I'll try to get around to an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Yes, I have a milliner.
