Setup & Tools

Hardware

I’m an apple user through and through, and hook my Macbook Pro up to a 27" Thunderbolt display while I’m in the office. iPhone 7 and Apple Watch round out my hardware setup.

Development

My text editor of choice is Github’s Atom, and has been since early beta. Panic’s Transmit 4 serves as the perfect FTP client, and I serve sites locally using Laravel Valet.

Terminal

I use iTerm 2 to handle all things terminal, from file management to git and everything in between. I use NPM and Grunt to make my web development life easier.

Design

I’m a long standing user of Adobe Creative Cloud, although I often wish I wasn’t. We're tied-in to Adobe at work right now, so for the time being it’s here to stay.

Keep in touch?

Now you’ve got to know me better, it’d be great to keep in touch. You could follow me on Twitter, drop me an email, or sign up to my mailing list (I'll only email you when I have something new to show, promise).
