My Desk

Looking at my desk, here are some of the items I use on a daily basis.


For work, I use a 2023 MacBook Pro 14 inch (M3 Max, 64GB, 1TB) connected to external monitors.

I use a 2021 MacBook Pro 14 inch (M1 Max, 64GB, 1TB) as a personal laptop.

Either laptop can be connected to my usb-c hub, and external monitors for a nice desk experience.

My past work laptops:

  • 2020 MacBook Pro 13 inch (M1, 16GB, 1TB)
  • 2016 MacBook Pro 15 inch (i7, 16GB, 512GB)

Gaming Desktop

When I find time to play games, I use a custom built desktop running Windows 11.

The desktop is connected to the same monitors, and I swap a usb hub with my keyboard/mouse/microphone/webcam between devices.
