I’m an author, YouTuber, and speaker who is passionate about helping students succeed. Most of my work today is done at College Info Geek – a site I created in 2010 in order to share my experiments in becoming a more effective student.

Today, College Info Geek is one of the world’s largest and best-loved resources for students, and includes a blog, podcast, and a YouTube channel with over 1 million subscribers.

My YouTube Videos Every week, I create new videos on studying, productivity, and self-improvement. Here are some of my favorites.

10 Steps to Earning Awesome Grades Over 200,000 downloads and 700 five-star reviews on Amazon

Published in January 2015, my first book helps guide students through the process of studying more productivity and boosting their grades – while simultaneously cutting down on their study time.

A short, punchy read, it combines my personal experience as both a student and entrepreneur with data-backed scientific evidence. Digital editions are also available for free at College Info Geek.

My Productivity Essentials Course

In January 2019, I launched my first full-fledged course – Productivity Essentials: Create a Custom System That Works. 

It’s a complete guide to creating a productivity system – the combination of a task manager, calendar, file & folder organization method (both digital and physical), note-taking system, and more.

The point of the course: Never let anything slip through the cracks. Once you’ve gone through the course and set up your system, you’ll always be on top of everything in your life.

The College Info Geek Podcast

The College Info Geek Podcast is a show dedicated to helping students learn and improve in all areas of life. Episode topics run the gamut from study tips, to sleep science, to internship and career preparation.

I’m joined on current episodes by my friend Martin Boehme, though I’ve also interviewed lots of authors, scientists, entrepreneurs, and other interesting people – including Gary Vaynerchuk, Cal Newport, and Gretchen Rubin.

Contact Me Alternatives to Smoke Signals

Hey there – thanks for visiting! I’m stoked that you’d like to get in touch with me.

However, because of my commitment to spending the majority of my time working deeply, and because of the volume of email I already receive, email isn’t the best way to contact me if you have a question or are reaching out for something that isn’t business-related.

Here are a couple of better options:
