I burn boats, not bridges.
I’ve spent my twenties as a software engineer and a sofa surfer extraordinaire, a political candidate and a policy wonk, an ex-pat and aspiring essayist.
I’m currently thinking about:
- Election security
- Improving incentive alignment in job searches
- Anonymous internet personas in the age of cancel culture
- Strategies to assert the integrity of hardware
- New applications for risk diversification (e.g. income pooling)
