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 list of all of my favorite stuff.


  • 14” MacBook Pro, M1 Max, 32GB RAM (2021)

    It's a great machine, in terms of build quality, performance, and battery life.

  • LG 32” 4k Monitor

    I've had this monitor for a few years now and it's been great. I would probably get a 5k monitor if I were buying a new one today.

  • Ducky One 2SF Mechanical Keyboard

    I'm rocking two of these. One with Cherry MX Brown switches and a second with Cherry MX Blue switches. Great sound and feel on both 🤘🏼.

  • Apple Magic Trackpad

    Best trackpad out there for me. I prefer it over mouse alternatives for most tasks, because of the gestures support and ergonomics.

  • Herman Miller Aeron Chair

    The most comfortable office chair I've ever sat in. The mesh is also great and comfortable for long sittings.

  • Viva Dual Motor Standing Desk

    I've had this desk for a few years now and it's been great. I thing it's a great purchase, especially for a home office, or for a workstation that you work a lot at.

Development tools

  • VS Code

    Kind of a standard these days for web dev. I've personalized mine a lot, in terms of themes, extensions, and settings, so it feels like home each time I use it.

  • iTerm2

    This is me default go to terminal. I've replaced it with Warp for a while, but found myself missing the consistency and simplicity of iTerm2, so yeah, now it's back as the default one.

  • TablePlus

    Great software for working with databases.


  • Figma

    It's great, easy to use and a powerful design tool (white board, etc).


  • Alfred

    It’s not the newest kid on the block but it’s still a very convenient and customizable app luncher.

  • Notion

    It's a great tool for organizing my work and ideas. It's quite powerful and flexible, especially if you create some templates, or make use of some of the existent ones.

  • Mind Node

    Great mind mapping tool for connecting thoughts and ideas. I've used it for all sorts of stuff, like to plan out some of my projects, or structure random ideas or personal goals.

  • Endel

    Great soundscapes for focus, relaxation, and naps.

  • Stoic

    Great app for journaling and brain dumping. It also has some great prompts and features for self reflection and meditation. A good alternative or another app to use in tandem with Stoic is Headspace, which is also a great app that could help with focus and meditation.
