Hardware & Gear

πŸ’» 2018 15" MacBook Pro

My third MBP. Before this, I had mid-2012 (Sherl0ck). My first was a mid-2009 17-inch (Gustav). I miss that big screen but definitely not how heavy it was!

🍏 2012 Mac Mini

The last Mini with user-upgradeable RAM. 😭 Has dual SSD & HDD thanks to the dual hard drive kit from iFixit. It currently has 10 GB of RAM because I haven't gotten around to buying a second 8 GB stick. πŸ˜…

Poor thing is on 24/7 since it acts as a server. Eventually I'd like to have a desktop Mac or at least a desktop setup for my MBP and a linux server machine of some sort.

πŸ“± iPad Air (3rd gen)

Mostly used for gaming and reading. 🀷 The Apple Pencil is great with GoodNotes & Procreate.

πŸ€– Pixel 3a XL

My second Pixel after the OG Pixel.

πŸ“· Canon T5i

I have the kit 18-55mm lens and a nifty 50mm f/1.8.



🍡 Gitea

I use this to host git repositories off of my Mini.

πŸš— Laravel Valet

For my MBP it's nice to have a web server that just works.

🌩 PhpStorm

This should be a given, since I'm primarily a PHP developer. Laravel Idea is a great plugin!

πŸ›  Tinkerwell

A must have for every Laravel developer.

πŸ— Tower

What can I say? I'm a visual person, so I prefer a GUI for git.


πŸ“š Calibre

I set up Calibre on my Mini to host my growing eBook collection.

πŸ“Ί Plex

Hosts a modest collection of movies and TV series from my Mini.

🎧 Spotify

Premium is worth it. I have the plan that includes free Hulu. Check out my profile and my full listening history since 2006 on


πŸ““ Notion

Amazing for organizing. I have the Personal Pro plan as I was a paid subscriber before they made a bunch of features free. Excited for the upcoming API.

βœ… Todoist

Helping me get things done since 2014.


πŸ”’ Authy

I like that it works on multiple devices.

πŸ”‘ Keybase

For encrypting stuff and things. Check out my profile.


🎩 Alfred

Much more useful than Spotlight by itself.

β˜€οΈ Amphetamine

Keeps my Macs awake when I want, with custom triggers and tons more features, for free.

🍸 Bartender

Tends the icons in your menubar. At time of writing, I have 13 icons hidden by Bartender.

πŸ–± BetterTouchTool

Many features but what I really use are the multi-touch gestures, custom touch bar buttons/widgets and window snapping.

πŸ’Ύ Carbon Copy Cloner

Takes full, bootable backups of my Macs.

What I Use too....


Hover, Namecheap, Porkbun – Oops, I need to consolidate!
