I bootstrap companies and write about the process. Right now I'm making money trading cryptocurrency, as well as building a course + community that teaches people to do the same. I got started building online businesses because I'm scared of living a life on the 9:00 to 5:00 grind. My priorities are living where I want, working as little as I want, and napping as much as I want.

I have an email list where I write about building my new business, trading cryptocurrency, and living freely. Sign up if you want to hear from me. I respond to all emails.




Chain Operator

I've been earning a healthy living day trading cryptocurrencies. People always asked me how I did it, so I created a course and community to teach the basics and winning strategies.


An app to learn languages with your favorite movies and shows using spaced repetition and active listening. I built the app on top of Electron and Vue.


Bitfountain was an online coding bootcamp that specialized in teaching iOS development. I was the CEO. Over 100,000 students enrolled in our courses.

Tic Tac Toe in Elm

I created this little game to learn Elm, a functional language with type checking used for front end development.

iOS Crop Interface

An extendable tool to crop photos in an iOS app. Shade out unfocused areas, add handles to the corners of the crop border, and keep the aspect fit of the image. Coded in Objective-C.

Syllable Counter

Count the number of syllables in a word or series of words. I built this so I could get a crude intro to natural language processing.
