• Hi, I'm Corey!

    Here's where I tie together my online writing.

    Featured writings:

    • I put the coolest things I find in my life into a weekly newsletter. Sign up below, or view past issues here.
    • I wrote city destination guides for San Francisco, San Diego, Barcelona (and many others in the newsletter archives tagged as 'Tips').
    • I compile a list of my favorite books each year, (2015, 2016, 2018) and publish detailed takeaways about the best ones.
    • I catalogue my current beliefs on my birthday each year. (26, 27)

    I blogged twice a week here from 2013 to 2015. Now I write long form pieces on Medium.

    Some things I've created

    2016-2019

    I cofounded this synthetic assistant startup that manages freelancers to do your annoying business work, though I'm no longer there. Packages start at $250/month.

    2015

    I interviewed 50 self employed entrepreneurs about their daily habits, to see what a successful day lived on one's own terms looks like.

    2013

    I project managed this book with my family, to answer the question 'I don't know, what do you want to do?'. It contains hundreds of fun games you can play with just about any group.

     

    The Wall Street Journal featured my family for putting aside team sports for quality time.

    Moomin Coliving House

    2016-present

    I live in a 12 bedroom house with 14 people, and I wouldn't have it any other way. We named it after the Moomin cartoon because it's blue with a turret, just like their house (right). Communal living is the future!

     

    I also organized the first San Francisco Co Op Crawl in 2017, which was essentially a bar crawl for co-ops. It's now a regular tradition, and I'm always on the lookout for intentional community best practices.
