Mobile Gear

I'm a big fan of fruity products, so you'll notice the majority of my mobile gear is made by Apple. I do most of my work on a 13" MacBook Pro (2017) but, honestly, it's about time for an upgrade. The 128GB SSD absolutely is not big enough, and the machine barely slogs through when I'm running more than two Docker containers.

  • 2.3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5
  • 8GB RAM
  • 128GB SSD
  • No touchbar

I use Apple AirPods Pro for listening to my jams while I'm on the go. I use my 11" iPad Pro as a second screen sometimes, though more often than not I prefer working on a single screen.

I also carry an Apple Magic Keyboard, a Magic Trackpad 2, and a Jubor laptop stand. These prevent my back from hating me for hunching over a laptop for several hours. Finally, I pack it all into a handmade vintage leather rucksack. 😁

Home Office

When working from home, I usually hook my MacBook up to a docking station with an external monitor so I can get a little more screen real estate:

Streaming

I use a two computer streaming setup. I do all of my work on my MacBook Pro while it's connected to the dock system mentioned above. Then I run an HDMI cable from my MacBook Pro to one of the capture cards on my streaming machine.

On my streaming machine, I run StreamLabs OBS. Finally, I combine the input from my MacBook Pro and my Logitech C922 Pro Webcam to create the stream!

While this setup is great, it's not doing all of the work! I'm also using several additional pieces of gear to really make the stream stand out.
