About Me

| what about bob

Born and raised in the Hudson Valley region of New York, I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Management and a focus on Entrepreneurship.

I held a few short-term jobs until I landed a finance job with Bank of America in 2006.  After five years with the bank, I left to pursue my own interests.  To design my life the way I want it.  For more information, see my resume.

Today, I’m working with several companies, forging ahead with explosive personal growth, creating fast-action startups, and exploring some personal projects.

Don’t ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and do that.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

~Howard Thurman

| the upward spiral

We’re familiar with the phrase “downward spiral”.  It’s a way to describe negative habits or situations that reinforce and encourage more negative habits or situations.  Downward spirals are hard to emerge from because of this constant reinforcement.

However, there’s a positive side to this coin.  When positive, beneficial habits are created, they reinforce and encourage more positive, beneficial habits.  When you sleep well, it’s easier to exercise.  When you exercise, it’s easier to eat healthy.  When you eat the right foods, you will have the desire and the energy to develop your mind.

As I have created positive habits in my life, I find it incredibly easy to maintain those habits.  Instead of constantly struggling to start them.

Here are some resources I find helpful in my personal upward spiral.  Some of these are to my personal pages:

  • DailyBurn – tracks body metrics (body fat % is my preference), workouts, and diet.
  • MapMyRun – great runner’s tool.  You can map your runs (hence the name), and log your workouts.  Good supplement to DailyBurn.
  • The 4-Hour Body – I have used the concepts in this book to go from a 23.0% body fat measurement to 15.8% (and counting).
  • Goodreads – books I’ve read, am reading, or plan to read.
