Picture of Conner Brown

Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! I'm Conner and I'm a second year law student here at Stanford. I came to law school because I was a debater in high-school and college and decided to make it my career.

Over the past few years, I've studied cryptocurrencies and have been blown away by their potential to change the world.

I have a wide range of interests from economics, philosophy and political science, to computer science, cryptography, and gaming!
