Inside Alex’s Workspace
Huge external monitor, but not super high-res so text is somewhat large on it (it's some sort of LG that I bought offline)
External Canon EOS Rebel T7 for high-fidelity video when needed
Podcast-grade audio setup, but nothing uber-fancy
Mac external keyboard (wireless) and touchpad (wireless), gaming mouse from Razor
Two phones - one personal, one work (out of shot, charging off of my gaming PC that you can't see in these)
Day bed (key for naps), currently lacking its cover as our puppy had an accident on it (during a work call no less!)
Stack of poker chips for shuffling when I get stuck in a work task
Pens/paper for notes
Apple Watch in case I work out
Various liquids with differing caffeine levels
Some sort of ergo-friendly chair that I bought online
Books, which are my friends and provide good sound dampening
