How are you directing?
I'm experimenting with building a bridge between web2 and web3 via "Handshake on Ethereum", with the goal of minting Handshake names as NFTs and adding features such as "passwordless auth via dns", domain marketplaces, and domain management for all of Ethereum. I've also onboarded many of my friends into Handshake by notifying them of the airdrop for prominent GitHub users.. I work in tech and know quite a few open source contributors.
I'm a community game designer for Hack Club (hackclub.com), a non-profit that Hack Club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is building an "operating system for teenage tech enthusiasts". We handle finances for student-run hacker clubs around the world, help organize community events, and many other things that help young hackers learn tech skills with each other. I can hold my breath for over two minutes. I'm endorsed on LinkedIn for having "Really Cool Pants" a lot.
How did you discover Handshake?
A long time ago, I met Tieshun (Namebase CEO) at one of my DJ sets. One day I was trying to navigate to Namecheap and my browser accidentally went to Namebase instead, where I discovered the HNS airdrop on my dashboard. I looked into who was building Namebase and saw that it was Tieshun and connected with him and his co-founder, Anthony. I ended up building the auction status timeline graphic for Namebase's website, as well as some of the domain search functionality.
Interests & hobbies
I play guitar and DJ (@zfogg on SoundCloud and Audius), make generative art with code and LEDs and lasers, and try to stay up-to-date with decentralized tech.
