This site is built in WordPress and hosted on DigitalOcean ($10 in credit). My email is hosted at Fastmail (10% off).


I program in Atom using Fira Code. Occasionally, I use Vim. A lot of my time is spent in FromScratch to keep my notes and as a braindump. I also use Trello a lot.

My main browser is Firefox using the Tridactyl Addon. For development, I use Polypane (of course) and sometimes have Chrome running too.


If I can, I design in the browser. If not, I like Sketch and I’m trying out Subform.


I dual-boot Ubuntu (primary) and MacOS (secondary) on a 13″ Macbook Pro. I have an iPhone and a Pebble Time watch. I have a standing desk. I prefer 5mm squared graph paper and I like sketching and writing on it with a Uni Kuru Toga 0.5mm mechanical pencil.
