Software I use, gadgets I love, and other things I recommend.

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


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

    I was using an Intel-based 16” MacBook Pro prior to this and the difference is night and day. I’ve never heard the fans turn on a single time, even under the incredibly heavy loads I put it through with our various launch simulations.

  • ZSA Moonlander Keyboard

    A “next-generation ergonomic” keyboard, that is highly customizable. Built on the open-source QMK firmware, it is a powerful and badass keyboard that takes a little getting used to.

  • Apple Magic Trackpad

    Something about all the gestures makes me feel like a wizard with special powers. I really like feeling like a wizard with special powers.

  • Herman Miller Embody Chair

    If I’m going to slouch in the worst ergonomic position imaginable all day, I might as well do it in an expensive chair.

Development tools

  • Intellij Idea

    The most versatile IDE there is.

  • wezTerm

    I’m honestly not even sure what features I get with this that aren’t just part of the macOS Terminal but it’s what I use.


  • Raycast

    A fast and highly customizable app launcher.

  • Bear

    Using a daily notes system instead of trying to keep things organized by topics has been super powerful for me. And with Bear, it’s still easy for me to keep all of that stuff discoverable by topic using bears amazing tagging system, even though all of my writing happens in the daily note.


  • Nu

    A new type of shell, written in Rust.

  • Starship

    A configurable prompt for your shell. Written in rust.

  • zoxide

    A smarter cd command, similar to fasd, but written in rust.

  • ripgrep

    A cli search tool that respects your gitignore. Similar to the silver searcher (ag.)

  • chezmoi

    My dotfiles manager.
