App layer researcher that helped discover principles, opportunities, and threats

In four years full-time of writing research posts with tens of millions of impressions, I helped attract builders, investors, policymakers, and news media to Ethereum and Optimism, and I helped ensure builders were maximally informed about important and novel opportunities and threats.


The opportunity for Ethereum and Optimism to become globally ubiquitous is path-dependent and not guaranteed to be realized. The quicker we can all learn, understand, and act on novel and important information, the more likely it is that our infinite garden successfully becomes a globally ubiquitous level playing field for all of humanity. My years of work to discover and write about novel and important principles, opportunities, and threats helped our community move faster and focus on the right problems.
