I started FitMind because I’m passionate about using meditation to promote mental wellness and maximize cognitive performance. During my childhood, I was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). After trying therapy and pills with limited success, I discovered a much better solution for bringing my mind under control: meditation.
The problem I found with meditation is that there are so many different methods; it’s hard to know where to begin learning. Some techniques are complex and difficult to master, while others are over-simplified. Based on my research and experience, I combined ancient wisdom with a scientific understanding of the mind to create an effective and manageable system of mental training, FitMind.
My background: I studied Psychology at Yale University, where I also began to train my mind through meditation. After graduation, I worked in finance as a private equity investor, before leaving to pursue my passion for mental wellness. I am an RYS Certified Meditation Instructor and have trained in Vipassana (Insight Meditation), Vedic Meditation and Meditation-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
