I absolutely love minimalism, and you can see it in the design of this website. When it comes to my device of choice, I always turn to my iPhone 13 Pro Max (512 GB). It's my go-to for capturing photos and videos, and I upload everything related to short-form on here. Since I typically shoot in ProRes with a high bitrate, I use Google Photos as a backup for my short clips. On days when I know I'll be doing a lot of filming, I also bring along a portable charger and a 256GB SD card. This ensures I have enough space and battery life to get the job done.
As part of my setup, I use the Rode AI-Micro along with the Rode Wireless II and the Rode Lavalier II. When necessary, I have two Bluetooth compatible on-the-go microphones that connect to my iPhone wirelessly and wired. These products are a complete game changer when I am away from my office.
At my home studio I use the microphone, the Shure SM7B with the GO XLR Mini. I find this setup very clean looking for my desktop setup while providing a high level of quality. Since I live in a high-noise environment. I find the SM7B an excellent microphone that blocks out a lot of unnecessary noise. If you would like to download my microphone presets you can do so here.
Wireless keyboard, mouse, and headphones have quickly become a staple in my setup. The freedom of being able to work, listen to podcasts, or hop into calls when I am away from my system allows me to multitask when before I couldn't. Thanks to the updated Logitech technology there is no difference to the human eye of having a wired mouse and keyboard in comparison to a wireless one. Another benefit is that my desk looks so much cleaner without all of those cords and wires. The current setup I use is the Logitech G915 TKL Keyboard , Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse, Logitech G PRO X Wireless headset. For my Mac, I use Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Premium Noise Canceling headphones, along with Logitech MX Master 3S for Mac.
The core component of my work from home workspace is my stand-up desk. I use the EKBACKEN Countertop from IKEA along with the AokPro Desk Frame Only, Dual Motor Standing Desk. Having a stand-up desk has been a game changer and a much needed addition to my workflow. Long-term sitting is associated with a variety of health problems, such as back pain and poor circulation. With a stand-up desk, you can switch between sitting and standing throughout the day, reducing the amount of stress on your back and body. As a result of using my standing desk, I have been more focused and productive at my workspace.
