Uses 💿

As a designer, developer and tech nerd I love all the gadgets and apps that will make my work easier or sprinkle a little more joy into the things I do. This page will be a living list of all the things I use on the regular for work and fun. WIP.

✨ This page is inspired from Wes Bos' and Brad Garropy's Uses pages.

🏠 Home Office #

The year 2020 moved me and many of us, into a work from home setup from one day to the next. I had never really been a fan of working from home, which let's be clear, is different than being remote. So, to make things work, I had to step it up and get a few more things to create a "fun" and productive space for me to work and game in. Even though I still miss working at an office or IRL coworking space, I do love the way it's coming together, and am very comfortable and happy with my little corner.
