A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor.

Victor Hugo

C. A. Hall

I enjoy puzzles and looking for the holes in things. I’m an introvert, but friendly. I’m a bit of a tech-nerd who loves notebooks and paper. I’m driven to learn and improve while always remaining a beginner. I’m a California native and have never lived anywhere else–though love I to travel and feel that one day I may start moving and never stop.

Over the years, I’ve written a few fairly popular pieces on reading, productivity, and not going paperless for places like Todoist & The Observer. My writing has been referenced by publications like Inc. and LifeHacker, and I have published one book of poetry called Erectile Dysfunction: Stunted Poems of Stilted Emotions.

For fun, I’ve had tiny roles in short films & music videos. And many years back I created 200 daily vlogs (which I’ve very slowly been re-publishing on youtube with no concern for chronology.)
