All efforts to make this site compliant with the accepted conventions of Markdown, Node.js, CSS, and RSS have been made to the best of my ability. Like any nerd worth their salt, If I don’t know, I ask.

Desktop Software

When I was powering my blog with Wordpress, I was a diehard user of MarsEdit. Since moving to Ghost, I haven't been able to use it, since there is no external API in Ghost with which third-party apps can interface.


As you might have guessed by the subject matter in most of my posts, I use a Mac. My machine of choice is a 13″ MacBook Air (Early 2013) running OS X Yosemite, although some research and occasional writing is done on my Retina iPad mini.

You can read more about the various Apple machines I’ve had throughout the years here.

With a rare exception or two, the photography shown on this site is my creation. These days I'm shooting with my iPhone 6.
