Welcome to Go Polymath!
As an aspiring polymath, I have always been interested in many things at once.
I have worked as a professional actor, musician, SAT teacher, model, translator, personal trainer, video games tester, bartender, gardener, ESL teacher, catering company owner, language tester, and software developer, among other things.
You can get a better idea about who I am and what I care about by reading my book, USEFUL THINGS (for free).
GO POLYMATH! is a celebration of peak experiences across a broad spectrum of ideas and endeavors. I aspire to have lots of peak experiences, and I hope you do, too.
While this site is meant to corral what I do into one location, it's also for those who resist specialization as the best way forward. This is a place for broad subject matter, broad risk-taking, and broad learning.
I hope you get a few ideas in the POLYBLOG to augment your own life. Then perhaps you'll develop a savage tenacity of your own to go further--and to become the best possible version of you.
Here's to doing that most important work,
