My name is Umpei “Kay” Kurokawa. I’m a software engineer with 8 years of experience with a B.S and M.S from Carnegie Mellon University in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I’ve worked in a wide range of industries, from audio digital signal processing, algorithm development for spectrometry equipment , and high frequency trading. My main strength is turning complex technical specifications into reality. My main tools are Python, C/C++, and Linux although I can quickly pick up any new technology that would be optimal for the job.

Recently I’ve decided to devote my career to the development of crypto currencies. I started studying Bitcoins in early 2013, and realized that amazing things could be done with this technology. You can look for my internet footprints at GitHub where I post open source code, and at Bitcoin Stack Exchange where I ask and answer questions relating to Bitcoins. I currently spend most of my time working on LBRY, a peer to peer digital marketplace that utilizes the blockchain for name resolution. 

I am available for consulting work.  If you have a project where you need a software engineer with a deep understanding of crypto currencies, please reach me at umpeikurokawa@gmail.com
