Hello and thanks for visiting Practical Hacks. I started this blog to provide practical, down to earth tools, techniques & ideas to help busy people get more enjoyment and productivity out of their lives.

An executive with 20+ years’ experience in consumer durables and industrial products marketing, I’m currently VP Marketing for a global company headquartered in one of the Great Plains States.  I’m always on the lookout for ways to make life easier, more meaningful, and more enjoyable; Practical Hacks is my way of sharing some of what I’ve learned – and continue to learn – along the way.

Here you’ll find posts about travel – particularly “one bag” or minimalist travel – DIY projects, productivity, software solutions, and career issues.  The blog is targeted at busy people who are frequently on the road – or on the go – and are looking to simplify and enjoy life a bit more.
