Hi, I’m Tristan. I’m an American publisher currently living in Tbilisi, Georgia.
I’m the founder of Osmosio, the place to learn about digital publishing. I host the Digital Publishing Podcast. I’ve written and published 40+ Kindle books, including ones about rock climbing, blogging, blogging (again), Chrome extensions, travel tips, and travel apps. I started and run fkb.me, the best place to go if you want free Kindle books every day.
My personal blog is The Aloof.
I was born in California and have lived in 7 countries (US, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, China, Ukraine, Mexico, Georgia). I speak 3 languages (English, Russian, Ukrainian) and have studied a few others. 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.
