Why get yet another email in your inbox?

I examine modern life + work (both employed and self-employed/entrepreneurship) through a multi-disciplinary lens, sent straight to your inbox every other Wednesday.

Put bluntly, I take in a metric f*ck ton of info on a regular basis, distill it down, and make it useful for you, now (with book references, always) - all presented in a casual, conversational way; like having a glass of iced tea together.

Bonus: You’ll get updates about my next book (a memoir) FIRST!

Be part of a community of people who share your interests - that is, understanding life + all its parts beyond the mere surface view and never-ending marketing messages.

If you enjoy questions more than answers …

If you feel most of what you see on social media makes you waffle between fear for the future of humanity + on the edge of rage …

If you nerd out on curiosity-fueled conversations, science references, + good beverages, you’re in the right place.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything.

5 Fun Facts About VK (that’s me, BTW):

  1. I majored in Japanese Langauge & Culture in college (major Japanophile right here).

  2. I learned to read before I could walk.

  3. I tried a bagel for the first time in 7th grade (age 12) - before that, I didn’t know they existed.

  4. I have 2 non-fiction books written + published via a small publisher. I’m currently writing my 3rd book, which will be a memoir and a major departure from my first 2 books (and now I understand why it takes some writers so long to finish just one book!).

  5. 5 is one of my favorite numbers (along with 12). To this day, I still have no idea why it is one of my favorite numbers.
