Joshua Beeler

I'm a programmer, brewer, lifestyle experimenter, and entrepreneur.

Every month I live in a different city. Last year I lived in 7 countries. This year I'm aiming for 10. I've explored Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Bangalore, Victoria BC, and the list keeps growing.

You can read about these adventures on my blog.

Right now I'm in Portland, OR.

Lifestyle Experiments

I commit to something different/unusual and do it every day for 30 days w/ documentation.

30 Days of Climbing - I’m going climbing every day for 30 days.
Let's Make Eye Contact - Every day I make eye contact with a stranger for 60 seconds.
Take Half Away - A portion control experiment. Every meal, take half away to eat later.
