Mentoring

/mentoring is a distributed mentorship movement. You can read more by going to mentoring.is or you can dive right in on Github.

Not everyone is comfortable asking for help without an invitation. This is that invitation! Passionate people inspire me, and I've learned a lot from talking to and interviewing people. If you ask, everyone has an interesting story. You're welcome to speak with me if you think it would be time well spent.

Here are some things I know about:

  • Wilderness survival
  • Being around at the very beginning of a company (and taking a major role in launching it)
  • Traveling on the cheap/without a plan/backpacking/hitchhiking/camping
  • Learning circus arts
  • Attending engineering college/getting a degree in Neural Engineering
  • If you’d like to work together, you can write me a letter responding to the questions below. I’ll write back to all letters I receive in this way within two weeks no matter what. In response to the most exceptional letters, I’ll propose further correspondence—and in certain cases, an ongoing mentoring relationship.

  • Tell me about yourself. How did you become who you are, and who do you want to become?
  • What do you hope to gain from our mentoring relationship?
  • What have you been thinking about lately? Any words or ideas that are stuck in your mind?
  • Add links to any profiles or projects you’re proud of, and send it all in an email to ifoundthemeaningoflife at gmail dot com.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
