And of course, it's about fun. 
Hi, I'm Alex. 
It is so nice to meet you!

What's my mission, you ask? I'm here to help people: 

  • Feel more competent, more cared for, and better understood.

  • Learn things that they find meaningful and valuable.

  • Solve interesting problems, and lead exciting lives. 


Here's how I'm doing that now.

I hope you have a great day, or if it isn't so great, I hope that it improves soon!

Brain Food. 


These are some of my favorite talks/videos/speeches. I hope you enjoy them and learn something new! 

Definitely send me your own favorites as well, or any thoughts on these you'd like to discuss! 

You made it to the bottom! Woo!
