Here's what I'm using these days:

Editor + Terminal + Coding

  • VS Code
  • Synthwave theme
  • Hyper or iTerm depending on the day
  • macOS
  • My daily browser is Firefox because its super rad and for debugging I use Firefox Developer Edition or Chrome
  • Font of choice for coding: Dank Mono
  • CMS of choice: Statamic
  • CSS of choice: TailwindCSS
  • Vue.js or Nuxt.js or Gridsome (aka Vue across the board)

Desktop Setup

  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) - 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7 - 16GB DDR3 RAM - 500GB SSD HD
  • My desk is the Uplift with white legs
  • My mech keyboard that I love is a Keychron 2
  • My laptop is perfectly positioned via the iLevel Rain Design Stand

Desktop Apps

  • I use the hand mirror app to make sure I'm not totally hideous when I show up at video meetings
  • is an amazing little app for grabbing and storing color palettes
  • CopyClip is a life saver because it stores the gazillion copies that I do. It will change your workflow.
  • Magnet is how I manage all my windows

Apps I couldnt live without

  • 1Password is the greatest thing since melted butter.
  • ProtonVPN keeps my internet traffic secure, which is super important when on public wifi.
  • I organize nearly everything on kanbans via Trello but am worried their Atlassian overlords will kill it
  • For dev projects Basecamp Personal is the coolest thing ever

Servers and stuff

  • I try to avoid server management as much as I can because it makes my blood boil.
  • For WordPress I've loved Flywheel
  • For cheap shared hosting and domains with free privacy I've used DreamHost for years without complaint
  • Cloudinary makes responsive image hosting super easy because #perfmatters


  • Currently I do a lot of mobile photography with my Moment gear
  • My DSLR for paid gigs and weddings is a Nikon D750
  • DLSR Lenses include:
  • 80-200 f/2.8
  • 16-35mm f/4
  • 50mm f/1.4
  • 85mm f/1.8


Yes I'm a huge financial/budget nerd. Lots more coming here soon.
