My Gear

These are the things I carry with me on a daily basis and love to use. It changes over time, so check back once in a while.

The Bag

  • REI 18L backpack – a few years old now but solid. Small, lightweight, great for daily use.

What’s in my bag

  • Google wired headphones – They’re simple and they just work. Love them for calls while on the go, don’t have to worry about batteries or other issues.
  • Midori Traveler’s Notebook is great for keeping notes, doodles, and random loose notes. I sometimes make my own paper inserts but otherwise buy them from Midori on Amazon or custom inserts from Etsy.
  • Uni-Ball gel pens are great – super smooth, long lasting, and just nice to write with.
  • Kindle Paperwhite – While on the go I love to have my Kindle with me and use the Paperwhite version. Long lasting battery, backlit, love it.
  • Acer Chromebook – super long lasting battery, boots up in about 5 seconds, handles 90% of what I need to do at any given time.

My Tech Stack

  • Readwise – specifically, the Reader app. My read-it-later app, highlighter, collector, and go to for all things reading and sharing with other apps.
  • ClickUp – what I use for managing projects and my team(s) for the past several years. I also use it for personal reminders and tasks. Flexible.
  • Google Calendar – hasn’t been beat yet. Simple and everything works with it.
  • Notion – I use this for databases and more multimedia based processes and random creations.
  • Roam Research – this is where my highlights from Readwise go, where my daily review takes place, and where I write and take notes from everywhere else.
