Mood Makers

I like looking at them when I am zoned out or seeking creativity:

Most used apps

  • Figma & Canva (design)
  • Notion & Apple notes  (writing, productivity)
  • Android Studio & XCode (code editing)
  • ChatGPT & Playgroundai (ai tools)
  • Capcut & Veed.io (video editing)
  • Garageband (audio editing)
  • Youtube & Spotify (music)

What is your favorite item in your workspace?

I love my monitor bar lamp. One of the cheapest upgrades that I have made and one of my most recommended ones.

How do you spark creativity?

I am trying to fully embrace Ed Sheeran's approach to creativity. So, just let it all flow out.
