Hello! Thanks for visiting my online home.

I structure my life around a simple goal: be happy and healthy in the year 2100. (Yes, really.)

Along the way I aspire to:

I’m building a collection of articles and notes about anything that gets me closer to my goal. Happiness, ethical living, financial independence, career satisfaction, entrepreneurship, health, relationships, goal setting, sleep, nutrition… these topics are all fair game.

I’ll also write about projects I’m working on, tools I’ve built, and technology I’m interested in.

Check out my /now page to find out what I’m doing now. Or email me anytime.
