I started going down the bitcoin rabbit hole later in 2020 after getting married and completing a master's program. I had more time outside of work and started to question what money is. I began reading about bitcoin and Austrian economics aggressively, listening to podcasts and following bitcoin Twitter. After deep study and interaction with many amazing people contributing to bitcoin's adoption, I believe bitcoin is the best money humans have ever discovered and imperative to ensuring individual sovereignty into the future. The interdisciplinary depth of bitcoin requires one to ask questions and be curious to learn.


I started practicing yoga around 2016/2017 and decided I wanted to deepen my understanding by the end of 2021 when I quit my corporate job in medical supplies. I completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training at House of Om in Bali in February 2022 and a subsequent week-long training in Himalayan Kriya Yoga. While learning about the history and philosophy and tuning in to the breathwork and movement, the connections between yoga and bitcoin became stronger in my mind. I have taught several kriya yoga classes in Austin and love sharing these practices and helping others align.

I have learned the most getting outside of the US and interacting with people in different cultures, having been to ~40 countries. I am also living an ancestral health lifestyle focused on eating lots of animal foods, meat in particular. I have run two marathons and love a good challenge. I worked in the healthcare industry for 7+ years, studied economics undergrad at Northwestern University, and completed a double master's in health economics and policy from the University of Chicago and London School of Economics.
