We often hear advice about how to become the best person we can be. However, the advice is usually generic. Orin speaks about how we can reverse-engineer that abundant amount of generic advice to suit our needs.

Orin C. Davis is a self-actualization engineer who focuses on enabling people to do and be their best. His consulting work is centered on maximizing human capital and making workplaces great places to work, and his research specialties are self-actualization, flow, creativity, hypnosis, and mentoring. Dr. Davis is a lecturer in Critical and Creative Thinking at UMass Boston and an adjunct professor of Psychology at Baruch College. He is also the principal investigator of the Quality of Life Laboratory, the Chief Science Officer of Self Spark, and a science advisor to Happify. He earned the first doctorate in Positive Psychology from Claremont Graduate University and did his baccalaureate degree in Neuroscience at Brandeis University.
