BStreet.io – Crypto Wiki Price Checker

This past summer, I assisted a seed-funded startup in partnership with Venture Capital Draper Dragon as their first intern. I collaborated in designing and developing a revolutionary cryptocurrency price-checking wiki. I headed the design and UI of the website and also built a landing page for beta registrations. I supported the team in all capacities ranging from company strategy to development. I researched cryptocurrencies; read through whitepapers and assessed each coin’s application of blockchain including P2P connection, middlemen fees, censorship resistance, and micro-payments.

Block Key Capital

Block Key Capital (BKC) is a US-based research and investment firm dealing exclusively with the emerging cryptoasset class.

BKC’s founding partners were first brought together while creating their university’s blockchain organization. Here they discovered a mutual passion and drive to be a part of the blockchain revolution. With more than 20 years of combined experience in the space, these eight like-minded individuals launched BKC Investments with the goal of providing exposure and education in this emerging asset class.

I currently act as Cheif Technology Officer of Block Key Capital. Learn more on the website.

Greek Week T-Shirt Design

As Press Relations head of Delta Chi, I am in charge of all of the apparel designs for the whole year. Miami University 2017 Greek Week was 90s themed and I drew inspiration from that era of design in the making of the shirt. Landshark is a favorite and a great logo aesthetic to draw from for apparel.

County Reinsurance, Limited

During my freshman year internship I was tasked with the full project of designing a site for County Reinsurance, Limited in Clemmons, NC. I worked on the site from start to finish and made all changes that were requested after proofing.
