tech, simplified.

There’s more to my writing than just Techinch. In my day job, I'm a senior writer and editor at Zapier, continuing the theme that’s driven my work since the beginning: making tech simpler.

I started out writing for Digital Inspiration in 2009, then wrote 241 articles at How-To Geek through most of 2010. In late 2010, I joined the AppStorm writing team, and in my nearly 3 years there I wrote 771 articles, mainly published at Web and Mac.AppStorm where I was editor, along with others at Windows, iPad, and iPhone AppStorm. Then, for the half year, I was the Software Training editor at Tuts+.

Let.ter App

Every new communications app wants to replace email, and yet email is still the internet’s killer app. It’s the sole cross-platform and cross-service communications tool that supports text, attachments, group messaging, personal encryption, and so much more. It’s the original long-form communications tool, along with your online passport of sorts, and it’s not going away.

Email actually isn’t the problem—it’s the overwhelming noise in our inboxes that’s the real problem that makes us want to avoid email. So why not take all that away, and make an email app that’s just about writing your messages?

That’s exactly what Let.ter is: an email app for writing messages with Markdown formatting and sending them without ever having to see your inbox. Mutahhir Ali Hayat, the coding genius behind Let.ter, and I have worked to keep Let.ter the simplest email app you’ve ever used—the email app you’ll actually want to use.

Techinch Magazine

2013 brought together what seemed the perfect way to branch out into a digital magazine. iOS Newsstand made subscribing to digital publications simple, and TypeEngine made it possible to get your own Newsstand app without touching a line of code. And thus began an 8 issue experiment into the future of digital publishing.

Techinch Magazine was a fun experiment, but ultimately, the web still seems the best place to publish—for now, anyhow.

Copywriting and Consulting

There’s writing about technology, and then there’s writing the text that goes inside your favorite apps. Over the years, I’ve worked with CoSupport, MetaLab’s Flow and Ballpark apps, Zapier, InboxQ, Artsy Editor, Typeform, Envato, and more, helping them craft the copy and support documentation for their apps that’d help their customers get the most out of them. I’ve also done consulting for companies, non-profits, and individuals to help them find the best apps and workflows to accomplish their goals, get the sites and documentation they need developed, and more.

And I’d love to help you accomplish whatever you need with writing, apps, workflows, and more. Feel free to get in touch if you need help with your copy, content marketing, and documentation.
