Subscibe for future updates by scolling down to the bottom and doing your thing. I will only email you with updates about content and will not bombard you with nonsense.
As I said, I Like writing, fighting, and Sport sciencing.
This site is basically about the optimization of our experiences as temporarily assembled clusters of borrowed carbon.
As far as I can see, everyone is just trying to navigate their own experience as best they can. I am no different. As such, I want to use this site to pass on useful lessons I have stumbled across for two reasons; the first is that writing forces me to refine my own thought processes by separating the wheat from the chaff, and the second is that these lessons may also be of benefit to others. A rising tide raises all ships.
Who am I?
A pretty good all round insight into what I am about, could probably be best gotten from this podcast I did on episode 100 of Sigma Nutrition Radio with Danny Lennon.
Academic Background: I graduated with a First Class Honors B.Sc. in Sport and Exercise Sciences from the University of Limerick, Ireland in 2012 and am a published researcher. Later in 2019 I’ll be embarking on a professional doctorate orientated around uncertainty based training planning. I am also currently a Nutritionist in training with Mac-Nutrition Uni.
Professional Background: I work as a Sport Scientist privately and with Sigma Nutrition.
Habitual Pugilism: I have had a long time fascination with combat sports since becoming an MMA fan in 2006. Later, I entered the pugilistic world as an athlete by becoming a competitive amateur boxer in 2011. I dipped my toes into the world of Mixed Martial Arts and K1 in 2016 and 2017 but my gloves are now hung up allowing me to put energy elsewhere.
