About Cyrus (Founder/Co-Editor)

Cyrus is a professional writer, content strategist, and information architect. He is passionate about new ideas, processes, technology, communication, and ukuleles. His quest for productivity perfection began shortly after college when he realized that he had no idea how to juggle life, a new career, and a new marriage all at the same time.

He now spends his time testing, refining, and learning as he goes, while attempting to lose weight. Which isn't easy when you are in your 40's.
