"When you live to the fullness of your life, you lift the collective human experience." - Elle Luna
Sometimes I feel as though life is a drawn out and excruciating process of self discovery. The last few days have shown me this in spades. It’s amazing what hard times will do to unclothe and reveal the most basic aspect of our psyche. Until my silent drive home two hours ago, I didn’t know […]Read More
…to be that guy you’ve always felt you wanted to be. to move backwards if it’s in the name of our values Now, now, now, Self… There are certain things that I do not give you permission to do. I DO NOT give you permission To care about what kind of car you drive more […]Read More
After my last blog on here a few days ago, many highly intelligent people (and a few nincompoops having intelligent moments) have pointed out to me that the delineation between scientist and artist is a false dichotomy. I agree. As per usual on this blog, this is my thinking-out-loud space. So, out-loudly, here is what […]Read More
AKA When your wife calls you names. There have been only two books in my entire life of which I have purchased multiple copies. The first of these books will come as no surprise; I have gifted this book to so many people over the years that I probably should have been asking for a […]Read More
REPOSTED FROM MY OLD, NOW-DEFUNCT WEBSITE. THIS ARTICLE WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN 2012. ***Disclaimer: I am not a Voodoo Expert (chiropractor, yes, but that’s another story). I am simply digesting out loud to stimulate my own thoughts on the matter. After having tried Voodoo Floss myself and seen great utility, I sadly found that no […]Read More
(reposted from my own Facebook post) The goal of meditation is not outcome. It is not an arrival at a better place. Nor is it to become an X type of person with X characteristic as their defining feature. The goal is to be capable of choice, of free will, of self control. Often, as […]Read More
The cynic rejects. The Skeptic puts aside for now. The cynic presupposes fault with no prior experience. He makes up experience where he already has an opinion. The Skeptic is ambivalent, while waiting to lean in or walk out. The cynic assumes uselessness in light of moderate evidence to the contrary. The Skeptic assumes some […]Read More
My wife recently sent out a Christmas card with a bunch of pictures on it. When I told her it was a bit deceiving, to show pictures from all of eternity, she promptly reminded me that all the pictures were taken this year (2017, at the time) and that we’d simply had an epic year. […]Read More
I strongly prefer “guiding principles”, as oppose to resolutions, goals, or whatever else. I’m not oppose to all the aforementioned, but have found their utility in my life diminishing over time. I think that’s a good sign, frankly. There are only so many quantum leaps left. Massive actions just don’t seem to work a lot […]Read More
I am hoping that you caught the subtle irony of this title. In most people’s worlds, “less” is a function of degree. The same ingredients make up their daily, monthly, and annual lives, with the only variation coming in the form of degree. I ate too much. I didn’t exercise enough. I want more time […]Read More
Who Am I?
Teacher, writer, mover, adventurer, chiropractor, coach, idealist, mess-around-er, injury-haver, adviser, consultant, and caffeinator.
But mostly a starter.
I was introduced the health and fitness world at the age of 13 and have been hooked since. 20 years laters, and there's no signs of slowing down.
What Do I Do?
I own and operate several businesses, all related to health and human movement. I was in clinical practice as a chiropractor for seven years until 2018 and am currently on sabbatical from full-time practice. I only assess/treat clients on a consultation basis for the foreseeable future.
I teach. I build things. I write. I even hit publish on some of it.
