This is a blog for the intellectually curious, for star gazers, for anyone who wants to live a considered life.
I am flirting with a new series, “How the world works,” that will translate concepts from various fields into digestible information for busy professionals. In it, I will link to articles that I believe are worth your time. I’ve been making sense of the world my whole life and career. This is a place for discussion and to share what I’ve observed.
All blog content was moved to private for all of 2012 to 2015. It is resurrected here.
