Hi,
I'm Alexis

& I'm from the Internet.

Scroll further for my story and parcels of my portfolio.

BEFORE 2012...

I learned how to code in HTML/CSS when I was 13 to sell Myspace templates to my friends.

Unfortunately, I lost them years ago but the memories remain...

Around this time is when I became a lvl 9000 memelord thanks to an early exposure to 4chan.

2012-13

I discovered Bitcoin at 18 and it changed my life. I've been participating in the community since.

My first shitcoin shill was Devcoin. I did not have any design skills at this point but this was my way of explaining it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I started working with site mapping for the earliest crypto products in 2013.

Mid 2013 I moved to San Francisco to start working in the Bitcoin and tech industry.
I picked up odd data entry gigs and was teaching myself SaaS product development.

I also made the fist "Women in Bitcoin/Crypto" list.

2014-16

In early 2014, I was hired at BTCjam, the first P2P lending company to use crypto and the first crypto "defi" product, as an entry level worker that was the first non-executive hire.

In the first six months, the lead dev and I built a robust KYC/AML system that served users in over 100 countries while we scaled the userbase 10x during this same time. I also managed and grew the support/ops team 5x within the first year.

After the first year, I was promoted to the product team. I had taken courses on the side before this and have been self taught.

During this time, I...​

Designed, coded, and iterated on drip campaigns and transactional emails in three languages.  

I was SCRUM master. I worked closely with the designers and engineering team to implement and iterate on user flows and features. Along with providing mockups and wireframes.

I project managed the borrower side app that was deployed to thousands of users in Brazil.

I worked heavily on the investor side of the platform. Our UX research involved user interviews, a/b testing, etc.

In addition to everything above, I crafted the company's branding documents and wrote many blog posts that can be read

BURNOUT

BTCjam shut down in late 2016 due to the founder's decision along with VC pressure who thought crypto to be dead. The Bitcoin winter had hit us all really hard and after spending the past 5 years hustling and the past 2 years working 60hr+ weeks, I took 9 months off to travel and visited crypto communities around the world.  From these adventures, I met a lot of the international community and now have great stories. In Zurich, I had my wallet stolen and lived off the Bitcoin ATM in the main train station for a week. I also freelanced and consulted part-time.

2018

In late 2017, I started contracting with CoinList. I participated in the facilitation of many ICOs including Blockstreams, and PROPS by YouNow ICO.

In addition to the operations work, I planned multiple events for CoinList over the year.

I moved from full-time to a consultancy position with CoinList in April '18. From there, I freelanced UX consultation and worked closely Yalda Mousavinia, CEO of Autark Labs, on her co-op SpaceDecentral.

I spent the Summer of 2018 in Samoa.  Below is a mockup I did for a remittance mobile app.

Upon returning from Samoa, I cofounded raveDAO2022 with Matt Liston. We threw ravecon0 in an abandoned factory in Prague on Bitcoin's 10th Birthday October 31st, 2018 during devcon4.

2019-2020

I have worked with companies and projects like Spankchain, Autark, NYM, Sora, and Polkaswap.

I have also worked on the first community led DAO to fund Ethereum development.

What's next...

I am open to your ideas on how we can collaborate together

 

Live Long and Prosper.
