Technology is a tool—not a way of life. I write tutorials and essays that solve problems for readers so they can focus on what actually matters. I’m currently freelancing for WIRED, The Atlantic, PCMag, Popular Science, and The Wall Street Journal.

Prior gigs include the Zapier blog, How-to Geek, Digital Trends, and MakeUseOf. I also worked in IT. Helping real people with tech problems taught me what frustrates the average person, which is why I’m able to explain complex topics in plain language.

My work is read by millions of people every month, which is neat, but I care much more about the handful of people who write me to say an article was helpful or meaningful for them.
