My name is Mike Murphy. I create daily content. I teach people how to figure things out.People have always asked me for advice on what gear to buy or what software tool to use to do this or do that and I love it. I am a gear enthusiast but not a gear collector as I keep my possessions minimal, but tools are necessary to create content and I always try to have the best tool for the job. I also stay on top of latest technologies.

This holiday gear guide is primarily stuff I use and highly recommend for other creatives and personal brands or online business owners.

I created this guide for fun. I created this guide because I am always pushing myself creatively. I created this guide because holiday gift guides can be helpful. I created this guide because I want to do more product reviews and this was practice. I created this guide to bump up my Amazon Associates commissions. I get a small commission when people go to amazon on my links. I think Amazon program is a win-win and I love that.

This guide was created by a creative with love for creatives with creators on their list :D. Enjoy!

-Mike

I illustrate everything in Adobe Draw. I actually just trace because I cannot draw, but I try because I like the hand-drawn look.
