I'm a frequent traveler with a passion for technology and simplicity. My goal is to travel light with quality gear.

Number of items

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)

It's the most important piece in my bag.

MacBookPro

Timbuk2 Messenger Bag

Automattic gives all new employee's a custom Timbuk2 bag. It's a great bag to bring along to coffee shops but not so much for day trips. While I no longer work at Automattic, I'm still rocking the bag.

Nintendo Switch

Sometimes during my downtime I like to play video games. I am a huge fan of the Nintendo Switch, especially as a father of a toddler. It's easy to jump in on casual gaming and bring it along with me on trips. There's no pressure or stress in the games I play and I play in bed for a few minutes.

Google Pixel XL 2

I was a iPhone customer for years. Then I switched to Samsung Galaxy S7 from Verizon. It didn't take long to become frustrated with Android and the apps Verizon and Samsung forced upon me. I considered going back to iPhone until I discovered Google Fi and the upcoming release of Pixel 2. This is by far the best phone I've ever owned. This is how Android should be.

Since my Nintendo Switch, Pixel, and MacBook Pro all use USB-C, I can use the same charger for all three devices. I carry my MacBook Pro charger for all of these.

 

Jabra Move Wireless Headset

Most in-ear headphones don't fit well in my ear. I like the quality of these headphones for the price but would prefer if it collapsed to save space.

Unfortunately, USB-C wireless headphones are rare. I'm stuck carrying around a micro-USB cable to charge this device.

Misc

hyperdrivec

I like the HyperDrive USB C Hub and was a Kickstarter contributor.

YubiKey-4C-1000-April-2017

I am crazy about security which is why I carry around a YubiKey 4 on my key-chain. Several of my online accounts are locked using FIDO U2F. I wish more online services supported this.

bellroy

I was sent a Bellroy wallet for a review and just fell in love. I've been purchasing their wallets since. My favorite has been the Hide & Seek. I had the travel wallet for awhile but found it to be too large.

bellroykeys

To go along with the wallet, I also own the Bellroy Leather Key Cover. It keeps my keys neat and stops that annoying pocket sound from the keys. My YubiKey attaches to this well too.
