Hi, I’m Tristan. I’m an American publisher currently living in Mexico.
I’m the founder of Osmosio, the place to learn about digital publishing. I host the Digital Publishing Podcast. I’ve written and published 39 Kindle books, including ones about rock climbing, blogging, blogging (again), and Chrome extensions. I started and run fkb.me, the best place to go if you want free Kindle books every day. I started Travel Knowledge Database, the site that attempts to sort the world’s travel knowledge.
I was born in California and have lived in 6 countries (US, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, China, Ukraine, Mexico). I speak 3 languages (English, Russian, Ukrainian) and am working on Spanish. I have a degree in linguistics from BYU.
I’m an avid rock climber and have established over 200 new climbs, including the second-longest sport climb in the United States. I’ve been in Climbing Magazine twice.
I’m currently in Cozumel, Mexico.
