Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m Eddie, a mechanical engineer from Southern California. I love tech and now that I recently graduated from college and started working, it has been great being able to invest into my setup. Although I’m just beginning, I’m eager to see my battle station grow!

What’s your favorite item on your desk?

Pretty much everything on my desk lol. But if I had to choose, the Hexcal studio for the slick clean look that adds so much cleanliness to the space (yet keeps the minimalist look), and my PC because of the length of time it to build and how it came out!

When did you start to work on your desk setup?

Slowly bought items for the setup once COVID hit. However it wasn’t till when I started working that I started building my PC and made several upgrades. So excluding COVID, about 5 months of continuous/consistent work on the set up.

What's your desk setup aesthetics?

Slick and comfortable. I like my desk setup to look clean and organized. Makes for a productive and fun environment! Tried sticking as best as I could to the black/ grey/ blue look!

What niche interest are you up to recently?

It’s been a mix of finding ways to make my setup more comfortable and also playing Pokemon GO haha.

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

Take your time and don’t settle for something just because it’s more attainable and requires less effort! The end product is worth it.
