Articles & Press

I've been writing articles and essays (and even one book!) in the domain of personal growth for many years. I launched Mindful Minutes in 2014, a personal blog about mindfulness and life balance in the digital age.

I also write for Deepak Chopra's Center for Wellbeing and have been interviewed, cited, and invited to guest post on various other websites over the years. Below is a sample of my writing.
