Discardia is a holiday I founded that is celebrated by carving away all that nonsense which isn't making us happy, and uncovering what does. It's about letting go of what doesn't add value to our lives - whether physical object, habit, or emotional baggage - and replacing it with what makes our worlds more true to our essential selves. Discardia.com brings together my online Discardian writings and comments from members of the growing Discardian community. You can follow Discardia on Twitter or become a fan of Discardia on Facebook. My first book, Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff came out in fall of 2011 and has sold over 3000 copies around the world.
Services I offer include planning, workflow, and productivity assistance to small businesses, individual professionals, and anyone interested in improving their life/work balance. I'm different from the usual sort of consultant in that I am offering my skills in small chunks of focused work together, rather than coming in with "my system" and trying to waffle-iron it onto you. I believe that focus is available to anyone. It shouldn't require thousands of dollars or expensive custom planners. All you need is to learn the techniques that work for you and, now and then, an outside perspective to help you get back on track.
MetaGrrrl.com is my personal site, where I have been blogging since 1998. It is a portrait of my life and what is on my mind at various times in it. I am gradually extending it backwards in time to fill in my pre-Web history.
Bibulo.us brings my quality over quantity philosophy to cocktails.It is co-authored with Joseph Gratz and covers recipes, ingredients, tools, resources, bars, people, and general essays on all matters relating to classic cocktails and fine service. I am currently at work on the first Bibulo.us cocktail book.
