I’m not organized by nature but I have taught myself how to keep organized.

I’m a full-time lawyer, I run this website, raise three boys, am always studying something and try to find time to exercise or meditate daily. The only way I can stay on top of things is by using the best and most efficient productivity tools to stay organized and be productive. I am constantly reading productivity and self-help books to ensure my productivity and organizational methods are as effective as they can be. The tools I create are based on these methods.

I believe that being organized is crucial to being more productive and to reducing stress as much as possible. Since life is too short, in my opinion, I strongly believe it’s very important to manage your time as efficiently as possible to get the most out of every day.

I believe in the importance of personal development. I am passionate about growing myself beyond what I previously believed was possible.


I studied Photoshop in high school and worked as a freelance graphic designer during law school to pay the bills.

I have 30 years of experience creating calendars, planners, journals and other tools to stay organized. I love developing new tools and templates to help me stay on top of things and be as efficient and effective as possible. It is my creative outlet and I love sharing the tools I create which is why all the tools and templates on 101planners are free with no strings attached.


I have a degree in law, and a Master’s in Business Administration, majoring in finance.

I started this site to share the tools that keep me organized and productive and help me reach my goals. I hope that you will find them helpful too. I strongly believe that planning tools need to be customized to suit each user. Everyone’s needs are different. Your planner should meet your needs and you don’t need to force yourself to work with whatever you could find. That’s why all my planner printables are customizable and free. I want to help as many people as I can without charging them. It’s my way of giving back.

I hope you enjoy using these resources as much as I enjoyed creating them.
