Who I am
I am a physician focusing on the applied science of longevity.
My practice deals extensively with nutritional interventions, exercise physiology, sleep physiology, emotional and mental health, and pharmacology to increase lifespan (delay the onset of chronic disease), while simultaneously improving healthspan (quality of life).
You can learn more about my background and experience, or watch as I explain my framework for longevity in the video below.

This website, my podcast, and my weekly email newsletter all focus on translating the science of longevity into something accessible, digestible, and actionable for everyone.
It is extremely important to me to provide all of this without relying on paid advertising. To do this, our work is made entirely possible by our members, and in return, we offer exclusive content and benefits above and beyond what is available for free.
Members get access to our full back catalog of ‘Ask Me Anything’ (AMA) podcasts, plus all future AMA episodes (released monthly), comprehensive show notes for every podcast expisode, exclusive discounts on products I believe in, and more.
Looking for more information about a specific topic?
What started as a small, weekly email to a handful of friends in 2010 quickly grew into a far larger mailing list including friends of friends, and eventually complete strangers. In 2011 I started sharing what I was learning on my old blog at EatingAcademy.com.
Today, what began as a personal blog about nutrition has grown into the site you see here: An ever-expanding hub of content on exercise, nutrition, metabolic disease, and all other topics related to the science of longevity.
I’ve written and interviewed experts about topics I get asked about a lot. These include exercise, nutrition, metabolic disease, ketosis, cholesterol, lipidology, and more. If you’re interested in a topic and want to learn (a lot) more, you can dive straight in. If you are looking for something more specific, we built a detailed index page to organize the various podcast episodes, articles, weekly emails, and research to help you find more information on a given subject.

Listen to my podcast
I created the podcast because I found myself having in-depth conversations with experts from a variety of fields that I wished I could share with others. The result is The Drive: A podcast dedicated to providing you with trusted advice and insight on optimizing all aspects of physical performance and health, longevity science, critical thinking, mental health, and life, in general (although we may mix in discussion on F1, watches, and pens along the way).
You can subscribe directly, or start by listening to some of the most popular episodes:
