I am not a guru, yogi, or a wizard.

If you came seeking any of these things
you will be gravely disappointed…

But if you’re looking for good books…
that I can help with.

What you get:
A monthly email describing the books I read and if they’re worth your time.

A single email teaching you how to double the amount you read.


Hey there, I’m Braden and thanks for stopping by!

I am a chemical engineer who uses his spare time to catch flying objects (ultimate frisbee), learn the streets of new cities (international street photography), and read as much as I can.

We all help build and influence our communities – whether it’s our friends, family, or cities – and we all have the capacity to inspire and improve the world around us.

The intent of this site is to share my favourite books, photos, and thoughts in hopes you find something that inspires a positive change in your own community.

I hope you find something here that inspires you to improve your own communities.
