My name is Ben Trapskin. I created Sleep Sherpa to educate myself and others about the importance of sleep and how to get a better night’s rest. In my mid 30’s I went through a period where I was only getting a few hours of sleep a night. This took a major toll on my physical and psychological health. After getting the proper help from medical professionals, I was able to get adequate sleep and life changed for the better.
Since then I have been fascinated with the world of sleep and the difference quality sleep can make in your daily performance. Aside from writing about sleep, I had been a librarian for 13 years. In that capacity I worked to connect people with new ideas and information to better their own lives.
