ENTER: Simon Sinek I was listening to Sinek (he was talking at Google) use game theory to describe the kinds of ‘games’ companies engage in: finite games, where the objective is to win … Continue reading Why Organizations Win, According to Musk, Sinek, and Paul Graham
I walked into -157 degrees Fahrenheit. And stayed there for two minutes. I didn’t have a trace of thermal clothing or even a shirt. You can see in the video that I walked in willingly. Want to understand how cold -157 Fahrenheit (-105 Celsius) is?

I am a biohacker and I’ve been biohacking for over a decade now. Being a practitioner for that long means that I’ve had to chart my way through the unavoidable messiness and realities of everyday life as an entrepreneur. I travel frequently for work.

On the contrary, most projects are visually stunning and lots of fun to play with!

I’ll keep it simple: I’m going to write. More often, more consistently, and right here. I’m not jumping onto the content marketing bandwagon as much as I am stitching together disparate threads and creating a single destination to showcase the end result.
