Who are you, and what do you do?

I'm a writer and stand up comedian. My new humor collection, I'm More Dateable than a Plate of Refried Beans, is out now! I also tweet an absurd amount.

What hardware do you use?

I have a 2018 13-inch MacBook Air. I don't even use an external keyboard or mouse, much do the chagrin of my wrists.

And what software?

As a writer, I do almost everything out of Google Docs. I find it easiest to share, and I far prefer it to Microsoft Word, although I think I'm in the minority here. I also use Final Draft for writing scripts, because that's the industry standard. I'm not sure this counts as "software," but I find the TikTok app really great for editing videos.

What would be your dream setup?

To not have a computer, honestly. I'm not sure how I'd share my writing - maybe photos of pages written in a notebook? I hate technology.
