Essays

My motto is: “Write every day.”

Most of my essays are about business, education, and what it means to be a citizen of the Internet. These essays are a record of my intellectual quest to make sense of the world. They’re the diary of my contemplative life. 

I write two kinds of essays: short-form and long-form.
