Hardware

Although I got my start designing and developing on an ancient Gateway laptop that I saved up forever to buy, I switched pretty quickly to Apple's ecosystem early on once I could afford it. I'm currently using:

  • My primary display is an Acer Predator X3
  • On top of that display sites a Logitech C920 Webcam
  • To the right is part of my livestreaming setup that I use as an external microphone for crisp audio
  • 2019 16" Macbook Pro (2.3GHz, 8-core i9, 16GB Memory, 1TB HDD)
  • Apple Magic Keyboard w/ Numerical Pad (space gray)
  • Apple Magic Mouse 2
  • 11" iPad Pro w/ Apple Pencil
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • Bose QC35 headphones
  • Apple AirPods, Gen 2
