about me

I've been working in the crypto space since 2013 - back when it was still called the Bitcoin space!I've worked in crypto as a lawyer, product manager, fund manager and consultant.I was the first Product Counsel at Coinbase, which I joined in 2015.

At Coinbase I was also the Head of Coinbase Asset Management, and the Product Manager for Paradex after its acquisition.

 
I wrote and lectured the world's first postgraduate course on the Regulation of Digital Currency, at the University of Nicosia in 2015.
 
I was the lead author of the industry leading legal research paper The Blockchain Token Securities Law Framework in 2016.
