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 the answer, I find the answer.

When I was running my blog off self-hosted 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. Update: this might be changing, maybe.
Since I already use Atom as my code editor, it pulls double-duty as my markdown editor too. I don't get the spiffy theme preview I got with MarsEdit, but I've gotten use to not having an exact preview in CSS. There's something to be said for minimalism.
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 13″ MacBook Air (Early 2013) running OS X 10.11.
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 6s.
