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 with which third-party apps can interface. #sadface

In addition to using desktop software, I run a web-based application on my own server called Fever to aggregate news feeds and spark my creativity. It's a really awesome piece of software and if you're into RSS feeds you should check it out.


As you might have guessed by the subject matter in most of my posts, I use a Mac. My machine of choice is a 15″ MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2015) 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. I've put together a few pinboards to showcase things I have in my tech go-bag if you're curious to see what I pack these days. You can also check out the things I use at work, and at home.

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