Software I use and I love, & other things

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software or stay productive (like a lot of folks apparently).

Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.


  • 14” MacBook Pro, M1 Max, 64GB RAM (2021)

    I was using an Intel-based 14” MacBook Pro prior to this, but I got tired of the fans!

  • Samsung 43” Ultra-Wide

    This is my main display, basically replaces two 27” side-by-side

  • Samsung 27”

    I use this display on top of the 43” Ultra-Wide mostly for monitoring, Music and Slack.

  • Apple Keyboard with Numpad

    Hands down the best keyboard out there: flat, silent and classy.

  • Apple Magic Trackpad & Apple Magic Mouse

    The ergonomy on these two worked for my wrists, so I just alternate between the two.

  • Herman Miller Aeron Chair - Gaming Edition

    Expensive but well worth it, it's like sitting in a cloud. Got the gaming edition as it was the only one with the true black color.

Development tools

  • Webstorm

    I don’t care if I'm missing all of the VS Code hype, WebStorm is incredibly helpful!

  • Fleet

    When I just need to make quick edits, but still want a GUI, I use Jetbrains Fleet.

  • iTerm2

    The tabs, the input broadcasting and customization is what I like about iTerm.

  • Linear

    Never again will I use JIRA for task management!

  • Arctype

    Great software to connect to your databases :)

Hosting / Cloud

  • Firebase

    For quick hosting of simple websites, Firebase is my go to!

  • Google Cloud Platform

    Once websites/projects grow big, time for the big guns!


  • Figma

    I have been a long time user of Sketch, but got tired of paying for the very little needs I have in design tools.


  • Raycast

    Used Alfred for years, but Raycast's UI is superior.

  • Cron

    I used the Apple Calendar app for years, but as soon as I tried Cron for the first time, I was sold!

  • Notion

    No need to introduce this one.
