About Me

Hi, I’m Derek Kedziora. I hail from Phoenix, Arizona but have called Kyiv, Ukraine home for most of my adult life.

I tend to read too many books at once, find arcane philosophical points relevant to daily life and have a full social life without social media.

My original career was teaching English as foreign language; since then I’ve ventured into the tech world as a UX writer and marketing editor. I do freelance writing, editing and consulting.

I’ve been practicing Buddhism since 2012 and am interested in anything related to meditation, the mind and hacking happiness. I’m slowly putting together a guide to meditation and non-theistic spiritual practice.

My blog posts are an eclectic collection of ideas and tests I run on myself. I’ve tried everything from paleo to vegan, distance running, teaching myself languages and dipping my toe into the digital nomad lifestyle.
