For the last 20 years, I’ve designed, developed, and marketed products in various industries. I love everything about the process of discovering struggles and building innovative solutions to help people make progress.

In my quest to become a better human for me, my family, and society and live a happy and fulfilling life, I’ve become obsessed with cognitive optimization and longevity. I’m on a constant quest to figure out how to live better (physically and mentally) and optimize that for longevity.

In my newsletter, I share what I’m learning and thinking about, frequently synthesized with personal experiences and empirical data. Periodically I also share what books or products I’m excited about.

People who had a great influence on my thinking
