Software I use, hardware I love, and other tools I recommend.

As a developer, I rely on essential tools and hardware. From code editors like Visual Studio Code to version control systems and task management apps, they streamline my workflow and boost productivity.


  • 13” MacBook Air, M2 Chip, 8GB RAM (2022)

    I was using an Intel-based 17" MSI gaming laptop prior to this and the different is night and day. I've never had a MAC device before and really appreciate the seamless integration with my other products. Also I seriously don't even need an additional screen (or mouse) with the built-in gesture features.

  • Apple MAC Studio

    Talk about power- this thing is rapid fast and works well with my other products. Video and photo editing isn't a problem.

  • GMMK PRO 75% Custom Keyboard

    I fell into the custom keyboard building hole shortly after the pandemic and haven't escaped. This keyboard is aesthic, sounds good and is durable. A keyboard for the ages!

  • Logitech Lift Ergonomic Mouse (White)

    I am in front of a screen and using a mouse 40hrs/week at a minimum. Getting this ergonomic mouse was a no-brainer, although I did have to get used to it at first.

  • Apple Magic Trackpad

    Something about all the gestures makes me feel like a wizard with special powers. I really like feeling like a wizard with special powers.

  • BenQ ScreenBar Plus

    I've been using this for a few years now and it's a great monitor light which helps reduce eye strain. As someone who stares at a screen both for work and offline, it was necessary purchase.
