I currently lead the product design team at Mothership, produce music as Cordio, make YouTube videos, design for coffee at Taste Notes, make icons at OS Icons, work on ideas at Trademarked, and run my Patreon.
I built this desk myself because I needed something large enough for 2 setups but didn't want to spend $750+ on a desk. Instead I built it using a slab of wood and legs from IKEA, and it now holds my main setup on the left (for design and music) and my secondary setup on the right (PC for gaming, streaming, and video editing). I also built the shelves myself just with some items from the hardware store.
I've also installed sound reduction foam throughout the room (not pictured) for when I'm working on music to help dial in the audio quality and mastering process.
I believe that setups should encompass what you love and are passionate about, so I've tried to surround my setup with items that bring me joy without inhibiting productivity. I also have a movable standing desk setup that I use to get a slight change of scenery or to use for filming YouTube videos.
Of course, setups are always a work in progress so not sure when I'll ever be 100% happy with it. Always trying to improve workflows and limit distractions!
For day-to-day work I mainly use Franz, Figma, uBar, Bartender, Things, Notion, and Chrome. For music I use Ableton Live 10 along with plugins such as Arcade, Portal, API-2500 Compressor, and J37 Tape. For videos I use Premiere Pro and iMovie.
As the lead product designer at Mothership, I am leading a few project initiatives based on current OKRs around growth and enterprise customers as our C-level team looks to raise our next round of funding.
I am also working on Taste Notes with a few friends of mine. Taste Notes will be an app that helps people track, review, share, and discover coffee. I'm a huge fan of coffee and have had this idea for a few years, excited to see it come to fruition in a couple months.
For music, I'm currently finalizing 2 new albums—an ambient and a beat album that I am releasing this summer. I am also working on videos on my music breakdowns and visualizers.
For YouTube and Patreon, I am working on a few product design videos as well as a vlog of the recent outing the Mothership team had.
