Co-founder & CEO
Helping Crypto-Asset markets mature, by developing software and data products, providing strategic advice on regulation and market structure, and working to connect "traditional" financial markets with evolving crypto markets.
I have spent most of my 30+ year career directly involved in the automation and analysis of equity trading. My early career was in technology, where I developed Morgan Stanley's portfolio trading system globally. After transitioning to the equity derivatives desk, I started the Salomon Brother Non-Dollar Program Trading desk globally. Later, I developed the first VWAP trading algorithm and the portfolio trading impact cost model before architecting the firms global market making infrastructure including Salomon's first central risk book. This led directly to my running the statistical and index arbitrage businesses, and later the firms smart order router and ATS business. I moved to Two Sigma to start the wholesale market making business and ran the broker dealer for 5 years. After spending some time running the transaction analysis and quantitative research signals business for IHS Markit, I joined ViableMkts to focus on helping clients develop strategies that embrace quantitative technology. This led directly to immersion in the crypto-asset space, where I co-founded CoinRoutes and have become directly involved in assisting clients adapt to the idiosyncracies of the market structure.
