Kurt spends his free time with his growing family and training in MMA with his beloved wife. They are both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors, and Kurt spent about five years as the head fundamentals instructor for the Alliance Jiu-Jitsu Training Center in Chicago. He is a successful competitor under Jason Sullins and Issac Riggs, and certified to teach by Masters Jacaré Cavalcanti and Fabio Gurgel. 


Kurt’s reputation is primarily for his teaching skills, and frequent podcast and media appearances. Kurt is never afraid to engage in a fiery debate, and his editorials are unapologetic while also being fair and fun to read. As host of the CoinGeek Weekly Livestream, Kurt is lively, informative and sometimes controversial. Known for keeping his cool under extreme pressure, he is a fan-favorite guest for interviews and debates. 


Kurt has a knack for keeping things practical while never being afraid to poke fun at people’s sacred calfs – or is it “calves?” Either way, he is a fearless advocate for the unbounded Bitcoin protocol and on-chain scaling with proof of work.

A Renaissance Polymath?

Kurt believes strongly in epistemological self-consciousness and the strong rhetoric backed up by hard work, self-reliance and the humility to know when to ask for help. He is just as thrilled to act as a business, bitcoin or software consultant as he is to be a life mentor or martial arts instructor.
