I’m a learner interested in using my skills and platform to build others up. My goal is to take the things I learn through my freelance work, reading and experiences and make them actionable insights for readers. I believe in playing long term games and will use this blog as a tool to do that.
Right now most of what I think about are the ramifications of technology on our daily lives, and how we can blend the lines between our physical realm and the digital realm. Some ideas that have interested me recently are Protocols vs. Platforms and Decentralized finance. I strongly believe that the 2020s are going to be the decade we see efficiency sacrificed for equity through decentralization across the board.
Between 2014 and 2020 Volleyball was my life. I played at Lewis University outside Chicago and had the opportunity to be on the team for two final four appearances. During that time I studied Computer Science & Data Science, which was how I became interested in technology. That lead to me playing a year of professional Volleyball in Ibiza, Spain and three knee surgeries over the course of five years. The knees ultimately made me quit before beginning another professional season in Germany.
Like everyone else my age I love to travel. I’ve moved around quite a bit growing up, so travel and change is always on my mind. Currently I live in Berlin, Germany where I spent a few years growing up. I absolutely adore the city and am happy to be back.
