About

My name is Dan.

I am a unrepentant geek, contemplative, writer and ultra-runner. By day I am Chief of Technology for a meditation app, and by night I write for your intellectual enjoyment. On weekends I run. Lots.

how to human being is the launch pad for my ideas on What Really Matters: anything from meditation to productivity; mental health to how to run 50 miles.

If you're new here, you can start with my two big picture pieces on Why Fitness Matters and Why Meditation Matters. Maybe you're interested in why I stopped drinking.

Ultimately, how to human being is an exploration of modern wisdom: what it means to live well, and how we can best go about it.

It is contemplative and ruthlessly holistic, plotting out a way of knowing yourself at the deepest level, and using that understanding to live a life of wisdom, value and joy.

For those looking to sail beyond the tepid waves of mediocrity, for those who want more than to just "get by", for those who want to live excellently, welcome on board!
