I Hack Health Blog

This blog was born as a result of many people requesting my advice on health, lab tests, nutrition, and productivity. I decided to make the rewarding process of helping others into a more scalable endeavor by posting my thoughts publicly. Although I started with a narrow focus on medical lab tests and the healthcare system, I may branch into other related topics over time based on interest and demand.

At I Hack Health, I teach readers how to enhance physical and mental performance while navigating the modern healthcare system using tested techniques, eg. saving $3000 on a diagnostic test.

Using my perspective as a former national level athlete, health experimenter, Crossfit certified coach, and patient, I provide readers with actionable advice on managing their health.

Human Hacker House (H^3)

This project was inspired by a thought experiment in answer to the question:

What problem, if solved by someone else, would make the world so much better? What would be the solution to that problem?

The Human Hacker House is a work-in-progress solution to the slew of problems in the American healthcare system, in particular: consumer access to the tools that foster discoveries in health and personal responsibility for our health.

H^3 is Silicon Valley’s first live-work hackerspace for health. In 3 months, I found 5 tenants, attracted 30+ community members, garnered $5000 worth of startup resources, and rental property for the space. 1 month after conception, we have conducted 3 experiments for physical and mental performance. I learned from my previous startup to focus more on applying Lean Startup principles and Steve Blank’s customer development processes while we are building a community.
