About Cranky Yankees

Cranky Yankees is an experiment in social education started by three friends — Jay, Bob and Mike. With a pointed interest in the arc of human evolution on a physiological level, the three curious minds wanted to explore the peak of self-actualized living. At Cranky Yankees, they talk about the convergence of health, wellness and science in pursuit of an almost imperceptible goal — living a perfect life.

Jay Miller

Jay Miller is an academic, intellectual, and amateur physicist. He started out as a child, posting on science forums, debating with adults over scientific theory and metaphysical concepts, often meeting them toe to toe. Jay went on to earn many awards and honors in the scientific field, using the breadth of his knowledge to further the cause of humanity and its collective evolution.

He handles the science side of Cranky Yankees, curating content and tidbits about the expansive world of physics, chemistry, biology, and so on.

Bob Barnes

Robert “Bob” Barnes is an enthusiastic people pleaser who has focused on health for most of his adult life, a journey he calls ‘fat to fit’.

 Suffering from obesity as a kid, he was often bullied in the schoolyard and even in his own home. He found mental peace, therefore, in strict physical exercise. Now, he champions the cause of mental wellness from physical health, he conducts workshops and trains young minds in the art of all-round fitness.

Mike Cumming

Mike Cumming likes to describe his life in two parts — before the accident and after the accident. After surviving a near-death experience, he vowed to turn his life around. Having left his daytime job and started a counseling service, he now acts as a life and wellness coach to lost souls looking for guidance and direction. With a purposeful focus on mindfulness, spiritual enlightenment, and rational thinking, he likes to write about betterment of life by making little changes to one’s daily routine.
