My set up

Set Up

I am fortunate to have had the means to update my Apple gear over the last 10 years and as some of my posts on this website relate to this hardware, I thought I would share my current home studio set up.

I use this set up in both my personal and professional life, from sketching (Wacom tablet) and Computer Aided Design (SketchUp Pro, Microstation, Revit) to photography (Photos, Aperture) and everything in between.
