iPad Pro with Apple Pencil11" iPad Pro 256GB

The iPad Pro has revolutionized my design process. I use it to brainstorm concepts, create custom illustrations, and hand letter designs. The iPad is an essential tool in my kit paired with the Apple Pencil.

4TB Elements Portable HDD

I have two of these External Hard Drives, which sit underneath my monitor. A 2TB hard drive that acts as an archive to offload past projects, and a 4TB hard drive for my backups. I also use Backblaze as a second cloud-based backup.

My Graphic Design & Illustration Software

All of my designs are created with the Adobe Creative Suite, using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I also use Procreate on my iPad for sketching, illustration, and hand lettering.
