I’m the Program Director for Quantified Self Labs, a California based LLC that supports the worldwide Quantified Self community. Currently I’m on leave to focus on my dissertation.


I am completing my Ph.D. in Public Health in the Joint Doctoral Program at San Diego State University and the University of California, San Diego. I am advised by Kevin Patrick, Matt Bietz, Elva Arredondo, Scott Klemmer, Sheri Hartman, and Jeanne Nichols. My research is focused on understanding how individuals use physical activity tracking devices and their impact on behavior. I anticipate wrapping up in the Spring of 2016


I live in Los Angeles with my wife, Laura. When we’re not working you can find us exercising, spending time with our friends, and trying to find the best sandwiches in LA.

I’m an avid runner and ex-avid cyclist. If running is your thing you can follow me on your tracking app of choice - Gyroscope, Strava, Runkeeper, Nike+.

Every Monday (when I’m in town) you’ll find me running around the city with the amazing BlacklistLA group.
