Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a young developer with a passion for desk setup and gaming. I like everything that is technological, minimalist and above all can have a positive impact in the everyday workflow.

What’s your favorite item on your desk?

I don't have a favorite item but definitely a few that I can't do without. I'm talking about the fantastic BenQ ScreenBar Halo and Edifier speakers.

Any tips for other makers who want to improve their workspaces?

Start with a good chair, it is very underrated but very important. Another thing, the computer, you will notice a lot of difference between using a laptop maybe a few years old and a powerful and fresh machine, maybe built by you :)

When did you start to work on your desk setup?

About 2 years ago, when I actually started to design my own space and buy components. I've always liked order and doing things in a precise manner, which is why I also chose the best components for my setup.

Your advice for beginners getting into Desk Setup.

Don't want everything now. Plan your space carefully and understand what you really need and what is superfluous. Your journey will be even better if you take inspiration from the endless desk enthusiasts on Instagram and especially Pinterest.
