I’m glad you’re here.

Get Your Hands Dirty

The Productivity Garage is a space where I share some practical advice, tools, programs or workflows surrounding productivity. It was named The Garage since much of the information here will be focused on practical approaches to work and projects and uses principled productivity in an applied way. This is a new venture, starting in November 2018. I’m grateful for your support and attention as I grow the project.
