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.)

My website is a collection of articles and notes about anything that gets me closer to that goal. Happiness, ethical living, financial independence, career satisfaction, entrepreneurship, health, relationships, goal setting, sleep, nutrition — all of these topics are fair game. I 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. If you’re interested, drop me an email and say hi.
