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

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, enjoy life a little more, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff, guaranteed to be updated often.


  • 14” 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 or been left stranded with noo battery life. I’m a big fan of this machine.

Development tools

  • Visual Studio Code

    The extensions help an amatuer like myself get by.


  • Bear

    I capture all of my notes, writings, and to do items in Bear. It’s easy to use, and markdown is a great way to format and write quickly.

  • Cron

    A calendar app with a beautful UI.

Copilot Money

  • Figma

    By far the best personal finance app around – great UI, tons of features, and a great team behind it.
