Hi I’m William,

I am a Lifelong Learner, Husband, Father, Adventurer and Everyman.

I write about Books I’ve Read, Places I’ve Been, and Practical Advice from my experiences. Through this website, I aim to develop my ability to engage in deep work, improve critical thinking, and articulate my thoughts clearly.

My site functions as a living Commonplace Book – a collection of lessons, resources, and lists that have benefited me and may benefit others as well. It provides structure for my projects outside of traditional work.

“The modern hero, the modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot, indeed must not, wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, rationalized avarice, and sanctified misunderstanding. ‘Live,’ Nietzsche says, ‘as though the day were here.’ It is not society that is to guide and save the creative hero, but precisely the reverse. And so, every one of us shares the supreme ordeal––carries the cross of the redeemer––not in the bright moments of his tribe’s great victories, but in the silences of his personal despair.”

Joseph Campbell
