I'm collecting a little list of the things that I love and that I often find myself recommending to others...



  • apple tv as the center of our living room (media streaming, photo album screen saver)
  • proclips for mounting phones to car dashboards
  • sonos playbar for living room sound (tv audio, streaming music)
  • fitbit aria - wireless scale
  • amazon echo - voice controlled shopping, search, home control, etc.
  • google home - voice controlled search, home control, entertainment, etc.
  • wink hub - to control the house: lights, temperature, locks, etc.



  • coffee: chemex coffee maker,
    bonavita electric kettle, bodum bistro burr coffee grinder
  • vitamix blender - I've used this nearly daily for a year to drink my fruits & vegetables



  • graeter's ice cream is my kryptonite
  • vega is my favorite protein powder (and plant based!)


  • la croix sparkling water (sparkling water got me off soda, and pampelmousse is the bomb)
  • ram's gate's red wines are really good


  • arcteryx for winter sport gear
  • maxton men for odds and ends
  • tom bihn for tactical bags
  • lululemon for athletic gear (no joke, it's not cheap, but this stuff lasts for years and years)
  • everlane for basics and some fashion - great brand doing great things with transparency
  • huckberry - well curated selection of stuff
  • proper cloth - custom fitted dress + casual shirts
  • taft - great shoes
  • allbirds - super comfortable casual shoes
