Hey!

If you’re here it’s because, like me, you’re excited about the future, and would love for it to come faster. As individuals we have the power, like a stone that is cast across the water, to create ripples.

This, I hope, is part of my ripple. Maybe I’ll help you create yours.

Here’s a few software/apps/add-ons I personally find very useful and allow me to increase my productivity:
