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.


  • 13.3” MacBook Pro, 8GB RAM (2020)

    I was using an MacBook Pro 2012 prior to this and the difference is night and day.

  • NEXSTAND K2-Laptop Stand Portable, Foldable & Height Adjustable

    Once I started using this stand, It's so hard to get back to not using it. It's compact, steady and height adjustable.

  • Rapoo Wireless Keyboard

    I got it because of the build quality and a very good look. It works most of the times :)

  • Logitech M331 1000 DPI Silent Plus Wireless Mouse

    Easy to use and the connectivity is much better than other mouse's I used in past.

Development tools

  • PhpStorm

    The best IDE to supercharge my code-writing.

  • Sublime Text 4

    I don’t care if it’s missing all of the fancy IDE features everyone else relies on, Sublime Text is still the best text editor ever made.

  • iTerm2

    I’m honestly not even sure what features I get with this that aren’t just part of the macOS Terminal but it’s what I use.

  • TablePlus

    Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.


  • Alfred

    It’s not the newest kid on the block but it’s still the fastest. The Sublime Text of the application launcher world.

  • Notion

    One tool that has simplifyed my note-taking.
