After a humbling 2017 marked by what felt like starting over my professional career in New York City, 2018 has been much steadier, with a new job at Wellthy, where I’ve joined an incredible team with an incredible mission. I have so much to be grateful for, but it has to start with Dasha, who I met at the peak (or rock bottom) of my new-job search in 2017 and since, we’ve been inseparable as a team and in finding adventures.
Fittingly, 2018 started with a big New Year’s sunrise at the beach in Guatemala.
Our first trip of 2018 had us go to Holbox Island in Mexico.

In my mind and in my Kindle:
- Is the world getting better or worse? What has driven progress? Read: Enlightenment Now, by Steven Pinker.
- At a time of so much wealth, why can’t we figure out how to get health, nutrition, and a great education for most children on the planet? And why do good people seem to get so hostile when disagreeing in politics? Why can’t we all just get along? Read: The Righteous Mind, Why good people are divided by politics and religion, by Jonathan Haidt.
- How to deal with age, as my parents go into their 70’s and I into my 40’s? Read: Being Mortal, by Atul Guwande.
Happy new year to all! Come see me in NYC!
