Break the Twitch is all about minimizing distractions and doing more of what matters.
I’m Anthony Ongaro. I’m the guy behind Break the Twitch. I live in The North—Minneapolis, specifically—with my lovely wife, Amy. We started exploring intentional living together, learned about minimalism shortly after, and have been designing our lives accordingly ever since. We enjoy traveling to new places, making videos, listening to music, and hanging out with our dog Rocky.
