Over the past few years I’ve been fortunate enough to have been invited to appear in many publications—online and off. My intention with this page isn’t to humblebrag or show how amazing I am—it’s to show that I’ve (hopefully) earned my chops to talk about productivity.

For press inquiries, the best way to reach me is via email. For book-related inquiries, kindly contact Owen Haney (U.S.), Frances Bedford (Canada), or Gemma Conley-Smith (U.K.).
