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, 64GB RAM (2021)

2 x 32” LG 5K Display
The perfect screen companion for my MacBook pro.
