People often ask what I've been up to...

This is what I'm doing now:

(This is a Now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too!)

  • Summer is coming to an end and it’s times for things to change. With Fall around the corner, and a TON of travel in the next three months, my head is spinning a bit. I’m currently in Paris as I write this, and have been loving this city. It’s perfect right now (not too hot not too cold, not too busy, but you should stay away from the touristy areas anyway)

  • 610 days sober (from alcohol) as I write this. At the 2 year mark I’m just going to stop updating this (thanks Nomo app for keeping track for me so I don’t have to remember or count. Technology, amiright?!)

  • The scope of my department at work has changed drastically since my last update, and it’s exciting to see where things might go… But things have been up in the air for months, so I’m ready for some decisions to be made.

    • Not knowing is the hardest part about change, but I’m savouring it.

  • Currently reading:

    • Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan (10% through book 10)

    • Language Hacking: French

      • It would be more useful for a complete beginner, but it’s already helped me come up with some tactics to get comfortable actually speaking the French that I know.

  • Current Exercise Routine:

    • When Not Traveling:

      • Gym 3 days per week, supplemental yoga and running

        • minimalistically training for a 10k, but I’m doing something bold and training cardiovascular endurance and frame strength separate, with maintenance runs so I know I’m not wasting energy.

      • When Traveling:

        • HA.

  • Current Diet:

    • “Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Vegetables” - Michael Pollan

      • I am using MyFitnessPal to monitor calorie intake and macros for the time being.

      • 40% Protein, 40% Fat, 20% Carbohydrates

    • Intermittent Fasting as I can fit it in.

      • Effective caloric restriction, with the added benefits of lower blood pressure, heart rate, and it helps to repair my relationship with food.

      • I’ve been traveling a lot, which makes it easy to eat either nothing or way too much.

  • Currently learning:

    • Passive

      • J’apprendre le Français… à nouveau

    • Skill-Based

      • Guitar

        • Practicing intermittently.

          • NOTE TO SELF: If you have not committed to attempting daily practice by the next update, you have failed yourself

            • UPDATE: I have failed myself. I will do better.

            • UPDATE 2: I am still failing.

    • Active/Overtly Physical

      • 10k training

  • Side Projects:

    • None at the moment. All of my Side Projects are more like sub-projects of my work with Netflix.

  • Recent Travel (since last update):

    • New York City, USA

    • Minneapolis, USA

    • Reykjavik, IS

    Upcoming Travel:

    • Portugal, Sept 13-21
