I manage blog content for VI. That means I also write a lot of the blogs you'll read on this site. It's a great gig because I get to explore so many topics close to my heart such as mind’s vast potential and what makes us healthy and happy. Hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
