Michael Kummer and his family

Dear visitor! My name is Michael Kummer, and I appreciate your patronage on my site. I began this blog in 2012 with the goal to share valuable tips and tricks that I had learned as an amateur photographer and technologist. What started with a narrow focus on photography and technology, quickly expanded to other categories, such as Finance, Health, Home, Parenting, and Traveling.

Michael Kummer

I am a parent of a princess and a preemie and a husband to a beautiful Costa Rican woman. Originally born in Salzburg, Austria, I moved to the United States in 2007 to help a Swiss IT company expand their global footprint. I am fluent in German and English, and I speak enough Spanish to order a Paleo-compatible meal in Costa Rica. Speaking of Paleo, our family lives a Paleo-influenced lifestyle and has done that for a couple of years.


When I am not working or blogging, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, red wine and playing with new gadgets. I am also a productivity freak, and I constantly look for ways to make my life easier.
