About Me…

Hi! I’m Jimmy and I spend a lot of my time in front of computers, phones, and tablets trying to get my work done as efficiently as possible. I am a networking engineer with a degree in Software Engineering. I have been an engineer for over 23 years (wow, typing that I can’t believe it has been that long!!!).

I live in western Pennsylvania and am married and have two wonderful girls. Some of my favorite things are:

  • Productivity Apps 😀
  • Star Wars
  • Parks & Recreation and the Office
  • All things Apple 👨🏻‍💻
  • Football and Soccer (or football if not in the US)
  • Video Games (FIFA, Minecraft and Call of Duty Warzone are my faves 😁)

I have spent a lot of time using various productivity apps (I may have a problem ?). It really is an obsession of mine as I think we live in the golden age of productivity apps. That is why I created The Productive Engineer blog and YouTube Channel (which you can find here). I am always finding out how to do new things that make my work life a little easier and wanted a place to share what I have learned.
