Apps and tools I use

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.


  • 13” MacBook Air, M1, 16GB/512GB

    I am a fan of Windows but MacOS is still the best operating system for software development. I've been using the M1 MacBook Air since it came out and it's been a great machine.

  • LG 4K Monitor - UL550

    I've been using this monitor for a few years now and it's been great. I'm not a huge fan of the built-in speakers but the display is great.

  • Keychron K2 V2 - Hotswappable

    I've been using this keyboard for a few months now and I really like it. I've been using the Gateron Brown switches and they feel great.

  • Logitech MX Master 2S

    I usually just use the trackpad but when I need to do some serious work, this is my mouse of choice.

Development tools

  • VS Code

    I've tried to switch to other editors but I always end up coming back to VS Code.

  • Warp

    Warp is a good terminal replacement for MacOS. I always used the iTerm2 but I like the workflow of Warp. I run it with a fish or zsh.


  • Figma

    Goto tool for all things design.


  • Notion

    For all of my notes, tasks.

  • Linear

    For issue tracking and project management.

  • Cron

    Super simple and clean calendar app.

  • Paste

    Best clipboard manager I've used on Mac.

  • Raycast

    I use this to launch apps, run scripts, and do a bunch of other stuff.

  • Shottr

    Free screenshot tool for MacOS.

  • Rectangle

    Open source window management tool for MacOS.
