My self-summary
I've been doing a tremendous amount of work on myself in the past year and a half, in the midst of quitting my job and starting a business. There's been a lot of stress, but a lot of growth too. My mind functions very differently than it once did, and I'm excited about this new pace of self discovery.
What I’m doing with my life
Evolving myself. Learning relentlessly thanks to my insatiable curiosity. Following my creative bliss. Designing board games and publishing them. Meditating every day. Healing myself.
I’m really good at
Cooking healthy, delicious food! Being honest. Researching anything that sparks my curiosity. Abstract thinking. Being hungry whenever I'm not sleeping.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most recent hits for me:
Book - Eastern Body, Western Mind
Movie - Boyhood
Podcasts - Duncan Trussell, Chris Ryan
Music - Holy Sons, Astropilot
Food - Golden Zahidi Dates
The six things I could never do without
Laughter.
Connection.
Compassion.
Authenticity.
Meditation.
Trees.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This wild and crazy human experience we're all sharing, and how to make it even better for me and for everyone.

Human consciousness, and how to keep evolving it. I think that's our only chance as a species. The human mind is astoundingly powerful, but if we don't learn to tame it we'll keep destroying each other and our planet.

I geek out about all manner of related topics. Early humans. Myth and ritual. Meditation and eastern philosophy. Psychedelics. Mystical experience. Quantum physics.

I've been going deep recently with Alan Watts and Joseph Campbell, and their wisdom is having a profound effect on me. They're helping accelerate my rethinking of the human experience, and I can't believe their ideas were never presented at any point in my many years of school.
