My Gear

My personal workspace is fairly minimalist and what some might call a little "vintage." I am hanging on to a mid-2012 13-inch MacBook Pro as my primary machine (it still gets the job done!) and use two mounted Acer 21.5-inch monitors as external displays at my standing desk. I use an Epson V39 scanner and Samsung Xpress Wi-Fi printer in my home office and I manage my home networking setup.

On the go, I use a 2017 MacBook and an iPhone SE. You'll also find me sporting fitness tech on weekly runs. My go-to devices right now include a Garmin Forerunner 745 and Jabra Elite Active 75t. You'll also find me sporting fitness tech on weekly runs. My go-to devices right now include a Garmin Forerunner 35 and Bose SoundSport Pulse wireless headphones.
