I get a lot of email, and it can take time to get back to everyone. Before you contact me directly check questions. Use the feedback form below if it isn’t here.
All that info is available below if you want to know what hardware, software, font, theme, or device I use.
I’m happy to help as best I can if you want career or growth advice. I recommend that you post it on Quora and tag me as A2A so that the wider community can gain, but if you want to privately, I’ll still try to respond!
I’m totally going to take your free things. If you’d like to give me a sticker, a T-shirt (L) or a Maruti Vitara Brezza. I can’t guarantee that I’ll share your stuff or talk about it but if it’s interesting, I’ll probably do it!

What equipment I use for Videos?
Everyday I get a few emails asking about the specifics of some piece of software or hardware I use.
I change up things fairly often, so this page will serve as a living document and a place to point curious creators to when I get asked.
If there is something missing leave a comment below or ask in my AMA — happy to chat and help you figure out your own situation.
Editor + Terminal

Collaborating with MS
I have a full schedule of other tasks I’m already working on, aside from the daily work it takes to keep the site going, so there’s very little space to take on anything else. With that said, I definitely don’t want to miss a chance to meet more individuals or join forces with someone who has a different set of abilities than my own. To explain the idea that you have in mind, use the contact form below. It will be added by my team to our list of projects to consider, which I review once a month. I’ll let you know if it looks like something I want to fit into my schedule!
