I spend most of my time working with tech startups. I founded and built OpenSit, a meditation journalling community. It was acquired in 2017, and I am currently working as CTO with the new team.
I share pretty pictures on Instagram, although I'm not as popular as our dog. I rarely tweet anymore, but you can still find me on Twitter. I share some of the code I write on GitHub, as open source software. I feel obligated to use LinkedIn, but I’m in no way happy about it.
I ran my first 10k in September 2016. This post includes my training plans, paces and tips for improving your posture and running technique so you can crack sub-50 too!

Meditation is the practice of freedom through insight. It is the wakeful experience of life. It is training the mind and changing the brain. It is an expression of our true nature.
The same desire that fuels our dissatisfaction is also the very compassion that brings us to the cushion, to begin afresh and discover deep freedom.
The demand — Who are we? — requires an integral response that leaves nothing out. We must acknowledge the cosmos in its entirety, both inner and outer.
Through meditation practice we bring clarity and compassion to the self, but ultimately the experience of self is always implied, never experienced.
I'm back on the internet! I'm excited to be writing again and sharing new projects.
