The Academia in Review newsletter covers topics ranging from emerging technologies, how to find mentors to speed up learning, mental models, real-world skills, and how to create innovative solutions. The goal is to answer one simple question: what does it take to become someone that solves the world’s biggest challenges?

I believe that it is possible to take anyone at any age and teach them the tools that will allow them to create scalable solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. In order to accomplish this, we will explore curriculums from places like MIT, Harvard, and Astra Nova. Explore how to pull aspects from environments like silicon valley and apply them to our personal lives.
