I am a physician focusing on the applied science of longevity.
My approach focuses on increasing lifespan (delaying the onset of chronic disease), while simultaneously improving healthspan (quality of life). To do this, my practice applies nutritional biochemistry, exercise physiology, sleep physiology, techniques to increase distress tolerance, lipidology, pharmacology, and endocrinology.
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.
My goal with this site is simple: To translate the cutting edge of the science of longevity (something roughly 0.01% of people are able to truly understand) into something that is accessible, digestible, and actionable for everyone, with the help of my research team and through in depth interviews with the leaders in this space.
If you’re new to the field of longevity, you’re in the right place. The best way to learn about the science, start to understand how you can optimize your own life, and stay up to date with the latest research is to subscribe to my newsletter, and listen to my podcast.
Sign up to receive the 5 tactics in my Longevity Toolkit, followed by non-lame, weekly emails on the latest strategies and tactics for increasing your lifespan, healthspan, and well-being (plus new podcast announcements).
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).

“This is how I would judge my life…’Did I earn my gift?’…We in our evolution can’t process death. Otherwise, we would have never left the cave. I left the cave. I was given the gift, and that gift is a responsibility.” — Ric Elias
“We think of all these responses, obesity, insulin resistance, and the beta cell failure, as pathologic. They’re actually protective. . .Your body is actually trying to protect itself against the root cause of the problem which is too much insulin, too much glucose.” — Jason Fung
“I think that sleep may be one of the most significant lifestyle factors that determines your risk ratio for Alzheimer’s disease.” — Matthew Walker
I’ve written extensively 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 specific topic and want to learn (a lot) more, you can dive straight in:
This website, my podcast, and my weekly email all focus on our goal of translating the cutting edge of the science of longevity into something accessible, digestible, and actionable for everyone.
