I am Unknown the Poet.
I am a self proclaimed writer based out of Los Angeles, California. I write for my heart and the heart of others. My works speak from my felt emotions and the feelings I get from the world around me. I am not a professional writer. I have never claimed to be. I have messy hand writing and I love it. My grammars bad at times, but I swear to you, I have an education. I am just a man that loves to express himself through art. I am not perfect therefore neither is my art. I self published my first book “Life isn’t Perfect, Neither is this Book” this year 2016 for which my goal is to get my works into the hands of as many people worldwide as I can. It is an amazing feeling, when you write something and post it, to have so many people feel the words and have them impact their lives in some way. That is why I do it. I don’t write to reach a celebrity status, I write to reach my readers, whom are now my friends. My age, my race, my looks and neither my gender should matter. Let my words be my being.
I am Unknown the Poet.
We are the Unknown Movement.
Let’s make the world a better place through our art.
Together let’s make the Unknown known.

Marina was born in 1982 to a mixed parentage. Her mother is of Indonesian origin and her father is a Malay Singaporean. Growing up in Singapore, she had a comfortable childhood followed by a more difficult school life. She couldn’t wait to leave high school; but didn’t know what she had wanted to do.

Her latest baking inspiration stems from her European adventures, visiting the various markets, delicatessens and sampling all the tasty treats. She is now married and living in Singapore with her husband and looking to open her high tea workshop where she will also provide one-on- one baking classes.

Craig is the Co-Founder of First Nature, a firm that helps business leaders and their teams to radically improve synergy, performance and create breakthrough results.
In 15 years of corporate strategy consulting and management, Craig noticed and personally experienced the full gamut of challenges and inefficiencies that show up in businesses, people and teams. After years of searching for answers to these challenges, a profound realisation in 2013 made it clear that there is only one cause responsible for all human-related inefficiency in business...and a great deal of personal struggle and unhappiness in life itself.
That one cause is a simple but widespread misunderstanding of how human experience works: It looks like we feel and experience our circumstances (e.g. events, situations and other people). It looks like circumstances have power. But the truth is, by design we can only ever feel and experience our moment-to-moment thinking, from the inside-->out. Said another way, we live inside an ebbing and flowing mind, and when we wake up to this fact of nature, it brings immense implications. For example, we cannot be a victim of the world, there is no power in circumstances, and we always have access to an unlimited supply of intelligent new thinking in any moment, to help us get done what we want to get done with grace, fulfilment and productivity. Simply, the human mind only works one-way (inside-->out via thinking) and has a built-in design for success.

In 2013 David Sandy had come off a year of foot problems that had caused his weight to go to 440+. He was in the process of shutting down his law practice. He had a side business called Nameperfection (http://www.nameperfection.com) that generated some income selling brandable domain names for startups on the internet. He briefly tried selling life insurance before deciding to focus on the domain name business that seemed to be going fairly well until Google and industry changes made it necessary to regroup.
He had started to make progress when his mother was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in 2014. She passed away in July of that year. In 2015, David struggled with health problems himself and managed to control them with a Ketogenic diet that allowed him to lose down to 355.
However, the diet, like all diets before, had stopped working and made him cold and sapped his energy. His thyroid levels had started to become hypothyroid.
In early 2016, he found information indicating that fasting could help control blood sugar levels and tried not eating for 18 hours. Seeing the dramatic effect even such a limited window of not eating had he figured that maybe fasting could work for weight loss.
He tried longer and longer fasting periods and passed below 240 on his last 20 day fast, a weight he figures he has not seen since sixth or seventh grade. In addition to the domain name business that has picked up, he has started a personal blog at http://prudently.com to talk about fasting and his life experiences up to this point.

I’ve been on a healthy eating journey for many years. Starting at age 28 when I discovered I was severely hypoglycemic, I’ve adjusted and changed my diet and the eating habits of those around me.
This journey has most recently led me to remove all processed foods, gluten and preservatives from my diet. The change in how I feel both physically and emotionally has been the inspiration for my blog, ThinStrongHealthy.com, and for a new business driven by my desire to see others make the same life changing adjustments. An unexpected result of these changes is a significant drop in weight.
I have consistently kept to this eating regimen for the past 4 years now, and the changes I’ve experienced I now share via article writing in an online news publication, products and blog posts and my new TV show titled, Thin Strong Healthy”.
Imagine… Americans changing the way they eat and losing weight without trying and without subjecting themselves to “diets” and the resulting yo-yo weight lose then gain we see happen all the time. Imagine needing to watch your weight so you don’t become too thin. It can be a reality.
My earliest childhood memory is putting my younger sister in a garment bag in my grandparent’s attic and not being able to get her out. I was probably 5 years old. I think the memory is clear because I was terrified of getting in trouble, which finally motivated me to get her out of the bag…
When I was 12 years old, the Beatles arrived in the US. I loved the song, “She Loves You”…mostly the “yeah, yeah, yeah part….
I don’t watch much TV. No drama, but I love old black and white movies. Late 30s through mid 50s.
My mission is to share my discoveries to benefit those around me.
I didn’t learn this… I live it!
