Kianté here.

Welcome to Forces of Habit. My aims to be as plain as I see fitting. It’s my minimalist desire for only what’s needed.


Me in 10 seconds

I am a developing cognitive psychologist, Ultra runner, and whatever current labels I choose to take on as of late; my identity tends to shift given the project.

I started this site for mostly selfish reasons long ago. My about can tell you a bit more if you're interested.

I talk to myself in public, am seriously curious, tend to wear ear plugs as the default, monomaniac, and appreciative of the chance to be part of it all.

Pennsylvania native, I now live in Ohio.
