I’m Nathan Hanks. My interests span a wide range of topics including public policy, cryptocurrency, music, and mixed martial arts. I’ll share my thoughts and the best things I learn from others here.

I’m a husband and father of three living in Dallas, Texas. Previously, I was a bit of a gypsy having been born in New York City, raised in South Louisiana, Telluride, and Las Vegas and having worked in a number of countries including Australia, Japan, and Brazil.

From a career perspective, I’m founder and CEO of Music Audience Exchange (MAX) and previously cofounder and President of ReachLocal. I’m an investor in a number of blockchain projects and tech startups including SmartThings and Dollar Shave Club.

I’ve got a BA from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and an MBA from Centenary College.

I’m deeply Libertarian.
