I prefer to sit cross-legged when working, so standard chairs have never been comfortable for me. After moving to remote working in 2020 and having more control over my own working environment, I decided to invest in this rather unusual chair - and I have to say - it has been the best chair I have ever sat and worked on!

The Soul Seat has noticeably improved my posture and the strength in my back, and I love the flexibility it gives me to move around and switch positions throughout the day. And what's more - the lack of a back on the chair is ideal when I use a green screen for streaming

My main machine is a Macbook Pro 16", 2.6GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 with 32GB DDR4 RAM. I've used MacOS primarily since 2006. I also have a MacBook Air that I use as a personal machine - but the specs are minimal!

I got into mechanical keyboards in summer 2020. My first purchase was the Keychron K2 RGB (UK ISO Layout) with Gateron Blue Switches. After hearing great things about the postural benefits of a split keyboard, I tried out an ortholinear split keyboard (borrowed from a friend). That made my brain hurt a little too much, so I moved to the Mistel Barocco. I chose Cherry MX Red Switches because the blue switches on the Keychron were a little loud for late night typing!

It was a little tricky moving from an ISO to ANSI layout, but I'm digging the split layout.
