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.


  • 16” MacBook Pro, M1 Max, 32GB 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 incredibly heavy loads I put it through with our various launch simulations.

  • Dell 49 Screen

    The bigger the better

  • 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. Still considering switching back to a mouse.

  • Ikea Thomas Chair

    Does the job. I’m not a chair snob.

Development tools

  • VSCode

    I’ve tried to switch to other editors but I always come back to VSCode. It’s just too good.


  • Figma

    Just kidding. I am not a designer.
