Every month I live in a different city. Since becoming a nomad in 2013 I've lived in Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Bangalore, Victoria BC, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Edmonton, and Stockholm. The list keeps growing.

You can read about my adventures on my blog.


Pensieve 1.1 Released!

The latest version of my app, Pensieve, can now record and send audio emails! If you already use Pensieve, update to version 1.1 to use the new audio feature.

Pensieve is an iOS app I created to make it dead simple to email myself. I use it to get stuff out of my head and into my inbox for later processing. Pensieve has no clunky email UI to slow me down, and with this update I can make and send voice recordings, so I can use it while driving.

Click here to view Pensieve on the iTunes Store. It's a free download for iOS devices.

Lifestyle Experiments

I commit to do something different or unusual every day for 30 days and document it.

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.
