About

I'm a writer who makes YouTube videos about the crossover of health, technology and art.

My writing is like the voice in your head found a typewriter. My first novel is called Charlie Walks, the story of a computer programmer who wants to be a writer.

My videos are like a Spartan warrior learned to code.

I teach machine learning and deep learning at the Zero to Mastery Academy.

My (current) mission is to use AI to help people move more and eat better (though this may be a case of "if you have a hammer... everything looks like a nail").

My ikigai (Japanese word for "reason for being") is learning to create and creating to learn.

In light of the above, I try to embarass myself every year by reflecting on what I've learned: see 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28.

I'm very excited for 2021.

I've been a machine learning engineer at Max Kelsen, Uber Driver, Genius at Apple, fitness coach and men's physique competitor in that order.

In 2017, I decided to start teaching myself to code, with a focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence via my self-created Artificial Intelligence Masters Degree.

My writing is available on Medium, Quora and here.

Every month or so, I send out a newsletter called Eat, Move, Learn, Make detailing my work. Why Eat, Move, Learn, Make? These are the things I like doing most.

I've done a handful of podcasts and interviews with others.

Making and movement are two non-negotiable daily rituals for me.

@mrdbourke is my handle on Twitter.

ENFP (disclaimer: I did this test once and have since become skeptical of it).

Brisbane has been my home town my whole life, I love it here. But when international travel opens back up, I'm going to go on an adventure.

Here's what I'm up to now.
