The short story:

I love wisdom. A lot. And, I love helping people optimize their lives so we can change the world together as I study, embody and teach the fundamentals of optimal living—integrating ancient wisdom + modern science + common sense + virtue + mastery + fun.

I created PhilosophersNotes + Optimal Living 101 + en*theos, wrote a little book called A Philosopher’s Notes, was featured in the documentary Finding Joe and have an Optimal Living column in Experience Life magazine.

In my past lives, I raised $8 million to finance the creation of eteamz + Zaadz (sold to Active + Gaiam) after graduating Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA (where I studied Psychology + Business).

I also love long hikes chatting with my wife, Alexandra, and going on adventures + playing blocks with our son, Emerson.
