Software I use, gadgets I love, and other things I recommend.

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive when I’m really just procrastinating. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.


  • MacBook Air, M1, 16GB RAM (2020)

    I was using an Intel-based 16” MacBook Pro prior to this and the difference is night and day. I’ve never heard the fans turn on a single time, even under the incredibly heavy loads I put it through with our various launch simulations.

  • Samsung Odyssey G9

    49 inches of curved display 😍 Might build a PC soon to really see what the advantage of it is.

  • Keychron K4 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard (Version 2)

    Lovely keyboard with a full layout and sounds great. Lasts a long time, really great.

  • 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.

  • Herman Miller Aeron Chair

    If I’m going to slouch in the worst ergonomic position imaginable all day, I might as well do it in an expensive chair.

Development tools

  • VSCode

    Nothing much to say here.

  • Hyper Terminal

    Lots of cool plugins like a rocket ship every time I type in git push origin main. Year I push to main sometimes, you only live once.
