Xi’an, China

Hey – I’m Jordan. I’m trying my best!! This site is a living documentation of that effort.


I have been publicly blogging for the past 3+ years, publishing daily explorations of my curiosities and evolving intuitions. I write for exercise: to learn, not to teach. I in no way aim to become a professional author or advice-giver or digital influencer or anything of that sort.

You’ll find 1000+ of my essays organized here. They cover a wide surface-area of topics, with categories spanning my life. I also write a newsletter.


I really enjoy reading books. Particularly old books. I keep a running list of books I have read here.


I love seeing the world. My full list of travels is here.
