My Gear

I run, code, dad, and try to be a good husband. I earn most of my income writing and coding and do some coaching to help others run a business that gives them the freedom they want so they can hang out with their family lots. I figure that if you have a business you hate, it's your own fault and I can help. [Get in touch](/contact) if you're looking to revamp your business so it doesn't eat all your time.
