Always on a quest to learn, with a focus on health, nutrition, fitness, personal development, and productivity — my blog is simply a repository for occasionally documenting some of the resources, research, and inspiration that I come across in the journey.


The Paleo/Keto nutrition approach rings true for me, based on what I have researched and observed in my own life. I feel dramatically better when I minimize carbohydrates in my diet, with a positive impact on my mood, mental clarity, satiety, digestion, and food cravings. I am still tinkering with my fat versus protein macro breakdown. I am passionate about food quality and eating real food, not processed junk. I also believe in the power of a quantified self (i.e. tracking macros, sleep, cycles, exercise, etc.) and enjoy learning about ways to #biohack life and nutrition for optimal health.

I am a devotee of the GTD methodology (by David Allen) to attempt to achieve optimal productivity and time management in life and work.

Zodiac Sign 

While I am not at all knowledgeable about astrology, the traits described for my zodiac sign resonate with how I perceive my introverted, perfectionist nature, so for fun…

“Practical Virgos are incredibly adept at big picture thinking, and planning out their life, their vacations, and what they’re going to do today isn’t a drag it makes them feel in control and secure. Virgo has a rich inner life. Virgos expect perfection from themselves, and they may project those high standards on the other people in their life. Virgos never want to disappoint the people in their lives. Virgos love and are inspired by beauty. Intelligent and a lifelong learner, Virgo loves trying new things, reading books, and learning about the world. They’ll happily sign up for an adult-education course, and they consider an afternoon in bed with a book pretty much ideal. A Virgo prefers an evening with good friends to a huge party, and values downtime just as much as socializing. This sign doesn’t need to fill their calendar to be content. Graceful, harmonious, and obsessed with making things the very best they can be, Virgo is notorious for being Type A but that’s only because this sign knows that everything good can be made great, and that everything great can be perfect. Smart and intensely curious, Virgos are passionate about uncovering the why which is why a Virgo’s friends consider him or her their own personal encyclopedia. Virgo is incredibly hard working. Known for intelligence, they happily research anything they don’t know, and love learning for learning’s sake.”
