This is a now page. I post one every month, and you should too. It’s the best way to connect with people you don’t talk to often. You can read them all here.

I finally published The Importance of Privacy, an essay born from countless discussions and debates with my closest friends. I’m seriously proud of it, and hope that it gives people the perspective to understand an underappreciated threat.

After a month of searching, I signed a lease on a suite in Vancouver with my friend Kamran. I couldn’t be more excited for him to be my roommate—even though University this year will be difficult, it’s going to be a lot of fun.

I very nearly achieved a goal I’ve been training for: running the Grouse Grind in under 40 minutes. It took me 40:00.

I climbed relentlessly, and did several trips. Two of these stood out: Sleeping on the summit of Alpha and the Viennese-Clarke traverse.

Climbing the best handcrack in the West on Dairyland. We demolished the 1400m approach in just over 2 hours.
