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

These are 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.


  • 16” MacBook Pro, M1 Pro, 16GB RAM (2021)

    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 heavy loads of eather multiple docker images or VMs running locally.

  • Keychron K8

    I started using a mechanical keyboard because I had issues with my finger tips being sore after a full day of work (and some gaming). My current keyboard uses linear switches (Gateron Optical Reds). I'm thinking about switching this keyboard for a split design one with columnar layout and tactile switched (Kailh Super Speed Copper).

  • 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.

  • BeYou chair

    Currently I dont have the chair yet. I'm waiting on my shipping. But I ordered this chair because Im still using a generic office chair and I wanted to have something different. This seemed to me to be a good option for me because Im someone that doesn't sit in the same position for too long. 🤣

Development tools

  • Neovim

    Oh by the way. I use vim. 😜

  • WezTerm

    I love the configuration options this terminal has. Its core is writen in rust, which makes it blazeling fast. Also, the configuration of the terminal is done in Lua which means a nice cohecent setup with my Neovim config.

  • Fish Shell

    "Finally, a command line shell for the 90s"
    Before I switched over to Fish I actually had a complete Oh-My-Zsh setup. But I dont know... I started noticing some slight slowdown, went looking around and found Fish. It has everything I want OOB is blazingly fast and I actually like to script in Fish as well. For team projects I use bass so I dont mess with my co-workers 😜.


  • Penpot

    I love that this thing is opensource. You can choose how to use it. Either web based like other tools or hosting your own server. There are no paywalls so I just use it from whiteboard, wireframes to full decked out designs.


  • Yabai

    It's a tiling window manager. Which allows me to quickly tile windows on the desktop, swap there positioning around etc. all from the keyboard.

  • Obsidian

    Using a linked notes system instead of trying to keep things organized by folders has been super powerful for me. And with Reflect, it’s still easy for me to keep all of that stuff discoverable by topic even though all of my notes live in a organical growing folder system.

  • SavvyCal

    Great tool for scheduling meetings while protecting my calendar and making sure I still have lots of time for deep work during the week.

  • Reminders

    All my actionable items I have to do live in Apple's Reminder app. I use a simple GTD setup for professional and personal tasks.
