President of Mercadian Systems LLC and Senior Blockchain Engineer at Rocket Pool Pty LTD
From 2011 to 2021, I was a lead software systems engineer with The MITRE Corporation. At MITRE I was responsible for the design, implementation, and operation of a wide gamut of systems, ranging from machine vision, to hardware test harnesses, to flight simulators, to quantum algorithms. Currently I am a full-time blockchain software engineer at Rocket Pool where I focus on software that makes staking on the Ethereum network via the Rocket Pool protocol easy and accessible. I also own my own company, Mercadian Systems. At Mercadian I do two things: first, I build low-power, affordable computers that make it easier and more efficient for end-users to run Ethereum nodes at home. Second, I host an "Intro to Quantum Systems" class that introduces interested engineers, both corporate and academic, to the bizarre but exciting world of quantum computers.
