Careers at DAR


Beyond my day job, I am involved with:

Chain Catalyst by Launchy

Pensive Pragmatism by Marco Manoppo

Research & Education

I spent my college days studying Industrial Engineering/Operations Research at Purdue University. After discovering crypto in late 2016, I spent my time reading about crypto instead of studying supply chain and thermodynamics. My strength lies in having the privilege and opportunity to understand the opposite spectrums of a system or concept.

I'm an institutional-degen – who understands how legacy financial institutions think about crypto, as well as what's happening with the latest DeFi project that tries to facilitate monkey JPEGs derivatives.

I'm a third culture kid – who understands how the US & other developed markets think about crypto, as well as how the space is developing in Emerging Markets.
