In past lives, I have practiced:
- music – as a symphony pianist, violinist, and flutist
- physical performance – as a U.S. nationally ranked short track speed skater, cross-continental cyclist, and Ironman triathlete.
Then, a minimalism binge: material possessions down to 100 things, training volume from 20 to 5 hours per week using Crossfit, and academic workload from 28 units to 12 units per quarter.
In the second year of college, I took a break from formal education, read 30 business books in 60 days, got bitten by the entrepreneurship bug, self-treated a health condition, was inspired to disruptively innovate education and healthcare, and have not looked back since. I am 22 years old.
