Sleep is the most common human behavior. Since we all share in our need for sleep, I decided to dedicate my life to helping people sleep better. After making a few iPhone apps that implemented aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy, I studied sleep and cognition and became interested in how to accurately track people’s sleep quality and alertness. Through my involvement in the Quantified Self, I tried out all the best wearable technology on the market. The combination of sleep analysis and wearable tech inspired my company Mobile Sleep Technologies, and led to a grant from the National Science Foundation to further study wearable sleep tech. I offer Sleep Consulting Services, which provides personalized sleep plans to help individuals, businesses, and athletes get a regenerative night’s sleep.

My Apps


Sonic Sleep is our new app that is still in development, but it is similar to our previously developed app called Sleep Smart. Sleep-2-Peak is a simple reaction time task that can detect your circadian component. Mind Metrics is a set of tasks that can be used by psychologists to evaluate psychological states (i.e. memory and alertness).

QS is a meetup group of self discovery through numbers, where we answer:

1) What did you do?
2) How did you do it?
3) What did you learn?


Sleep Stages


People typically have the following pattern of sleep: light sleep —> deep sleep —> light sleep —> Rapid Eye Movement sleep (REM). The quality of each of your sleep stages impacts how energized you feel in the morning. By deepening your sleep, you can get more out of the current amount of sleep that you are already getting. My sleep consultation service works to help optimize each part of your sleep cycle for the deepest sleep possible. The graph to the right shows my sleep over the course of a night while I am monitoring myself on a number of devices.

Circadian Component



Alt Text
All animals evolved to differentiate light from dark. That is why each animal on the planet, including human beings, has a Circadian Component. The Circadian cycle impacts your alertness throughout the day, with two low points and two high points per day. Many people are typically the most tired between 2-4 AM, experience their peak alertness at around 10 AM, get a slight dip in alertness at around 3 PM, and then get another boost of energy some time after dinner. I made a simple app called sleep-2-Peak that can figure out your unique circadian cycle (see the graph). Knowing your personal circadian cycle can help you schedule your daily tasks for when you are most alert.
