I've been a remote worker since 2007 (mostly for Silicon Valley startups), and so have learned that for better work-life balance (really integration) it is important to have certain physical separations, and hence I operate a double desk environment.
I have separate desks, Macs, notebooks, and most importantly phones.


Desk 2 (coding/evenings/personal):
Office second desk
  • IKEA Bekant sit/standing desk (x2)
  • Mac Mini (M2 Pro)
  • Macbook Pro (the last of the intels - doh)
  • iPad Pro 12.9"
    PAPERFEEL + pencil is amazing for sketching with ProCreate
  • iPhone 14 pro
    Personal phone (essential for work-life balance)
  • Akai MPK 261 (MIDI full sized keys)
  • Edifier R1280DB Powered Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers (used with Garageband (for now) and Spitfire Audio Labs incredible samples from Abbey Road Studios)
