if you're interested in getting an occasional update when i post a new article — there will be no spam, i promise! — just visit here.

i have a deep interest in technology, business models, and personal development. in addition to working in these areas, i write and speak on them, too.

i head up innovation for cloudflare. i'm also an advisor to peloton technology, a leader in self-driving trucks. 

i'm host of the exponent podcast; author of the nyt best-seller how will you measure your life? (harper collins); and i write quite frequently. my work has been featured in the harvard business review, bloomberg, business insider and reuters; on a particularly good day, the front page of reddit.

if i'm not online, i'll probably be in a poolin a yoga studio, or travelling somewhere off in search of adventure.
