About Me

Go with the flow! A well thought-out plan is still useful... Just be ready to change it!

I love efficiency, productivity, and optimization in my life. However, I also revel in abstractness, randomness, and peacefulness. I'm still trying to find the right balance (optimize).

A good day, for me, involves: exercise, meditation, healthy food, interesting people (you?), and positivity.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Imagine arriving to a secluded, warm, and sandy beach in Mexico. It's the off-season, so the locals are smiling and only a few long-term travelers remain in the picturesque town. Many have returned from around the world to take advantage of the rare peacefulness and beauty these months offer. Every night, you share the best sunset of your life with these people, effortlessly making deep connections. And every morning, you are gently woken up by the folding waves- reminding you that you've found paradise and get to live in it for another day. Yes, I was a beach-bum for a few months.

Side Note: You don't realize how uncomfortable clothes are until you put a shirt on for the first time in three months!
