Simple list of tools I use on the daily and have come to appreciate.

Home sweet home.

When it comes to hardware, I tend to value quality over superficiality or aesthetics, which is a total lie but it passes most of the time:

These choices are a result of years and years of intentional experimentation and financial tinkering. This is the stuff that works for me, and I can confidently vouch for just about everything on this list.

If you're curious, I drive a 2024 Polestar 2 and an '89 BMW 325i.


My priorities with software are quite simple—but apparently hard to meet, it must get the job done using minimal resources, look good, be as unobtrusive as possible while still allowing for smooth integration into various workflows, and also be native (to a reasonable extent). While I already have a page where I vouch for good software, this is a list of specific heavy-hitters that I use every day:

I try to keep things as simple as possible, and use built-in solutions if they're good enough, iCal and especially are more than good enough for me and actually have turned out to be better than most of the competition, though I'll admit my use cases are far from exhaustive. too works surprisingly well, it's actually quite pleasant if you do, and you get seamless cross-device syncing. Safari has unironically been a joy to use as of late, and I hope WebKit stays strong for years to come, though I wouldn't mind having to use Arc Browser forever.
