I'm a writer and editor covering technology, specifically:

  • productivity software, including apps for both business and personal use,
  • smart home tech,
  • and health and fitness tech.

I also write about travel and lifestyle topics.

In addition to writing about technology, I also follow scientific research related to productivity, such as studies on time management and the physical and mental effects of cumulative sleep deprivation. You can read some of my work on this topic at ProductivityReport.org.

I also give talks about personal productivity, sharing with different communities strategies and technologies they can use to help them be more organized and efficient in their daily lives. Some of the groups I've spoken to include state legislators, booking agents for music acts, master students in athletic science, and women's business organizations.

Currently, I'm a contributing editor at PCMag.com, where I write a weekly column called Get Organized. I also write regularly for the DailyDot, where I cover smart home technology.

My first book, Get Organized: How to Clean Up Your Messy Digital Life, published in 2013.

Previously, I've written about food, video game development, and the odd movie review. I was managing editor at the now folded Game Developer magazine. I first got my editing feet wet working at The American Institute of Physics.

Location

Since 2015, I've live abroad, first in Chennai, India (2015-2017) and now in Bucharest, Romania. In past years, I lived and worked in New York, San Francisco, London, Buffalo (NY), and the Washington, D.C., area.
