As a guy who digs finding new tools, routines, and applications, I enjoy seeing what others are using and how I can streamline my work, make better use of my time, and be smarter every day.

This list is evolving and I’ll continue to make changes. Check back regularly to see what new tool I’ve found.

Tools

My current setup is an early 2011 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with a 128 GB Solid State Drive. I needed a SuperDrive, which is why I opted for the Pro instead of an Air. Before this I used a perfectly fine 2007 white MacBook. It’s still a real work horse, but it’s time for an upgrade. Probably going to get the new MacBook Air.

Nearly everything I read online is via Feedly either in Chrome on my MacBook or on my iPhone/iPad. If you don’t have an RSS feed, I probably have never visited your site.

I never leave the house without my iPhone 7 Plus, my slim front pocket wallet and my keys. On my key chain I hold an Lacie Key USBTrue Utility and Swiss Tech Key. Why, yes I have opened a beer bottle or two with my True Utility Key.

Here’s my Carrd.

TweetDeck is my Twitter client of choice on the MacBook and Tweetbot on the iPhone (Although, I sometimes use Tweetbot on my MacBook).

There are a few iOS apps I use that personally I feel are high-end, beautiful to use and indispensable on my iPhone. These include Overcast, Sleep Cycle, Todoist, SparkDropbox, and Day One.
