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.
I teach machine learning and deep learning at the Zero to Mastery Academy (currently to over 130,000 students worldwide!).
My mission is to use AI to help people move more and eat better. And I'd like to own a large piece of land in the next few years to grow my own food.
I'm currently working on Nutrify, an app to allow you to take a photo of food and learn about it (imagine a Pokédex for food or Shazam for food). By the end of 2023, Nutrify will have 10,000 paying customers.
My ikigai (Japanese word for "reason for being") is learning to create and creating to learn.
I try to embarrass myself every year by reflecting on what I've learned: see 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29.
In 2019, I left the workforce and started working for myself.
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. I live in suburb called Brighton.
I refer to it as Brisbane's Northern Beaches.
My house is a 10-minute walk to the water.
I try to get down there and walk every day.
Here's what I'm up to now.
