I am interested in Austrian Economics and Bitcoin. I am a summer research fellow at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama. I am also a 2015-2016 Mercatus Center Frédéric Bastiat Fellow. Previously, I researched microfinance in India under the auspices of the Fulbright Scholarship funded by the US Department of State. I have a blog called Anarchy Is (, where I discuss economic theory and crypto-currency. I am currently residing in Liechtenstein, where I am completing my PhD in Economics. My father lives in Tampa, Florida, and I visit him every summer. When I have free time, I enjoy traveling the world. I have lived in Costa Rica, India, France, and briefly in the Netherlands. I am interested in learning more about economics, philosophy, epistemology, and logic. My favorite non-fictional authors include Konrad Graf, Peter Šurda, Daniel Krawisz, Murray Rothbard, Hans-Herman Hoppe, Guido Hülsmann, and Ludwig von Mises. My favorite fictional authors include Carl Hiaasen and Christopher Moore. I try to attend as many conferences on economics as possible. In 2014, I attended the 10th Annual Gottfried von Haberler Conference in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, Mises University 2014 in Auburn, Alabama, the Digital Currency Summit in Andorra, and the Molinari Institute’s annual conference on economics in Troyes, France.
