I'm a recovering physicist currently working as a quant.

I run a blog about personal finance and have published one book about the same topic.

I'm currently working on an investment book, a beginner's book on financial independence, and a book on ethics.

I've also written a chapter in a book about peak oil, some creative stories for an ezine, and about 30 papers in academic journals mostly concerning subtleties about neutron stars.

“For instance, why do we still work eight hours a day, 50 weeks a year, when we're twice as productive as we were 50 years ago?”
Jacob Lund Fisker, Early Retirement Extreme: A philosophical and practical guide to financial independence

“The question you need to answer is what you want to do with your life given that you don't have the time to do everything? Do you want to spend most of your life paying off the interest of a 30-year mortgage and working so you can fill increasingly bigger houses with increasingly more stuff while being stuck in your daily commute in increasingly nicer cars? Or are you prepared to give up the stuff so that you can do whatever you want, whenever, and wherever, within reason? What will your legacy be--what you owned or who you were?”
Jacob Lund Fisker, Early Retirement Extreme: A philosophical and practical guide to financial independence

“To paraphrase Einstein, you can't solve your problems with the same mindset that created them.”
