Please describe yourself in three words

"Startup guy" (two words, but only because "Startup" is kind of ambiguous without "guy".

In your words, what is Quantified Self?

Ubiquitous and continuous monitoring and deep data analysis of individual micro and community macro physical, biochemical, and neurological markers with multiple individual as well as community uses in personal and community health. I suppose there is probably a complementary definition that involves invidual life data collection as a kind of historical/social record with associated social analytics, but I tend have more interest in the former rather than the later.

Please describe your work or interests and how they relate to Quantified Self

I am investigating ideas in consumer-based continuous and non-intrusive health monitoring with an ultimate near term intent to take this beyond just ideas and to start a company to address segments of this domain.

Are you currently tracking anything? What would you like to learn how to track?

Mass (using Fitbit Aria WiFi scale, great product), basic activity (using Fitbit Ultra pedometer, also a great product), intermittently monitoring sleep (using Zeo, an ok product). Working on tracking much much more, but more specifically metabolic and other biomarkers, sleep patterns, activity patterns including energy use, heart rate, blood pressure, etc.

Introduction

I am a "chronic entrepreneur" currently focused on consumer-based continous and non-intrusive health monitoring and pre-diagnostics reporting, working on expanding my awareness and network in the QS space.
