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 (2019)

    I have been using an Intel-based MacBook since they released in early 2006. They are handsdown the best machines for development and security work

  • Dell p2419hc

    I have been using 2 of these 24 inch screens at home and in my office for a few years now. The amount of connectivity (USB-A and USB-C) very usefull.

  • WSAD Custom keyboard

    We use a full size WASD custom keyboard in the office, featuring Cherry MX Brown switches to not be super clicky but still give a tactile feel.

  • XTRFY K5 COMPACT Keyboard

    65% custom keyboard with retro keycaps and Momoka (Flamingo) Linear switches. It is my go to travel keyboard that still offers full media keys and macro support.

  • Logitech MX Ergo

    I switched to using the MX Ergo a few years ago and the amount of discomfort after a long day nearly dissapeared, having multiple channels including a receiver and bluetooth make this my go-to.

Development tools

  • Jetbrains

    Ranging from Phpstorm, Pycharm and RubyMine the tools Jetbrains offers are second to none.

  • NeoVim

    For all other stuff that has nothing to do with Php, Python or anything or if I just want to edit stuff fast. My config for NeoVim can be found in my dotfiles.

  • iTerm2

    Works together with my own dotfiles that setup ZSH and Tmux just to way I like it.


  • Affinity

    Searching to replace Adobo I landed with Affinity Photo and Designer and have not looked since. They support all the plugins for Adobe software as well.


  • Hammerspoon

    Hammerspoon is a fork of Mjolnir by Steven Degutis. This is a tool for powerful automation of OS X. At its core, Hammerspoon is just a bridge between the operating system and a Lua scripting engine to control many aspects of your OS X environment.
