I’ve been writing at BirchTree (in many forms) since 2010 and really do appreciate everyone who takes the time to read what I put down here.
I live in northern Illinois with my wonderful wife. I love to golf, drink good coffee, and run. I also record a short weekly podcast called Bite Size Tech that I truly enjoy recording.
My favorite writing topics are technology, video games, and productivity. If you want to get in touch, Twitter is the best place; I’m on there everyday.
- iPad Pro (2017 10.5”) – My workhorse
- 2015 MacBook Pro – For those rare things that my iPad can’t do
- Apple iPhone 8 Plus – I’ve tried Android a few times and keep coming back to the iPhone
- Nikon 1 J4 – decent, affordable mirrorless camera
- Field Notes notebooks – these bad boys are in my pocket everyday and are amazing tools
- Bose Companion 2 computer speakers
- Blue Yeti microphone – I love this microphone!
- Ulysses – I use this on my iPad, iPhone, and Mac, and it’s the best wrting app I’ve ever used
- Scrivener – if you’re writing something longer, you can’t do better than this
- OmniFocus – for getting shit done
- Tweetbot – the best Twitter app for both the iPhone and Mac
- Apple Music – Still new, but I like it
- Pocket Casts – I listen to a lot of podcasts and this app makes it super easy
