Software, gadgets, and other things I use.

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, Apple M3 Pro, 18 GB (2023)

    Jumping from the 13” MacBook Air with its M1 to the behemoth 14” MacBook Pro wielding the mighty Apple M3 Pro chip and a whopping 18 GB of RAM has been like trading in a trusty bicycle for a rocket ship.

  • Samsung Smart Monitor M7 32" LED UltraHD 4K

    When I'm working from home, I use this monitor as my main display. It's big enough to have multiple windows open at the same time. Maybe not the best display, but has a good quality-price balance and do the job.

  • Keychron K3 Bluetooth Wireless Mechanical keyboard

    The first time I heard a mechanical keyboard work was music to my ears. I looked at all the types of switches that existed and what they were for, and I bought this piece of iron with brown switches that I am very happy with.

  • Apple Magic Mouse v1 (2009)

    You read that right, it's the mouse I've had since 2009, it works like the first day and I love using it, so I don't plan to change it until it decides to shut down for good.

  • BEKANT Standing Desk

    I know, it's a whim, but being able to stand up and sit down without having to move anything on the table and change posture is great for my back. I have also glued some leds that my partners gave me under the table and it looks so great.
