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 (2018 12.9”) - My workhorse
- Apple iPhone XS - 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
