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

For those enthusiasts out there, I love sharing what I use to build software, stay productive, or even relaxing for the weekend. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.


  • 13” MacBook Air, Apple M2, 16GB RAM (2022)

    My first personal MacBook. I had only started using a Mac in 2022 and I was hooked. Definitely an unforgettable purchase as I turned towards my adventure into software engineering.

  • Dell S2522Hg 24-inch

    A remnant to my gaming days, I use it heavily everyday for work and pleasure. Probably one of the better 240Hz gaming monitors out there that has a slew of inputs. For those gamers out there - it is an IPS monitor with anti-glare. You will not be disappointed.

  • Asus VG248QE 24-inch

    Another remnant to my pro gaming days, I use this vertically next to my Dell monitor. A little narrow but it does the job and I can see more lines of code!

  • Plugable 4K 12-in-1 Laptop Dock

    The key piece of hardware that allows my Mac to automagically connect to both monitors and use it all at once! Just a simple homebrew download and it is as simple as that.

  • Keychron K8 Pro QMK/VIA Wireless Mechanical Keyboard

    Second QMK/VIA keyboard offered by Keychron, I love it with brown gateron switches with its hot-swappable capabilities. Not too loud for the office and not too soft that I cannot feel the tactile typing experience. The added plus here is that I can customize any key I want to have extra functionalities.

  • Sennheiser HD 599 SE Around Ear Open Back Headphones

    What can I say? Why not wear great sounding headphones while working to LoFi Girl?

  • Autonomous ErgoChair Pro

    If I’m going to slouch in the worst ergonomic position imaginable all day, I might as well do it with Autonomous ErgoChair.

Development tools

  • Visual Studio Code

    I have all the fancy tools I need to make my life easier. This should be self-explanatory for any MERN developer.

  • IntelliJ Community Edition

    This could be controversial, but whenever I code with Java, I just feel the need to be in IntelliJ CE. It is just THAT much better than VS Code.

  • Terminal

    As much as I do like fancy tools - I still love the simplicity of the terminal. No iTerm for me...yet.


  • Figma

    Who doesn’t use Figma nowadays? I’ve used it as long as I can remember starting out from designing new features for a mature product to managing the design for a startup.

  • Miro

    A product manager’s favorite tool. Plenty of collaborative features that makes PMing a dream. Better than Lucidspark, Whiteboard, and Mural.


  • Notion

    I use it for its tables and organizers as I run away from excel and google sheets.

  • Obsidian

    Markdown note taking app. Markdown. That’s why I use it. Tables - though - are a work in progress and I use Notion for that as I mentioned.

  • Forest

    Simple tool for blocking distracting things on my phone.

  • Ticktick

    Daily organizer of personal, client, and project tasks. I use it to organize my days, weeks, months, years coming up.
