What's up! I'm Rikard, a 19 year old excited about improving lives at the intersection of biology and tech and empowering others to reach their goals through community building. Super interested in longevity, blockchain tech, psychology, and politics. You can catch me playing soccer, following MMA, and going down obscure youtube + reddit rabbit holes. I love meeting new people, so reach out! Glad to help out any way I can 🙂 Twitter // Linkedin // Github // Medium
