3M Peltor Ear Protectors ($22)
When I’m on the go and need to concentrate or do some memory training, I use some heavy duty construction-grade noise blocking headphones to drown out the sounds. These give me my personal space and allow me to get work done.

Moleskin Classic Sketchbook ($17)
I love these sketchbooks, especially without lines. I plan my days, work out memory strategies, and even draw in them whenever I’m on the go.

Sony a7iii ($1998.00) + accessories
I’m always filming or creating memorable content for my YouTube channel and for clients, so I always bring my small (but powerful) Sony mirrorless (along with a few accessories: lenses, microphone, SD cards, drone).

Samsung T5 SSD 1GB portable drive ($185)
This thing is tiny, powerful, and fast. I use it to store my footage on the go and also as a drive to edit from when I don’t want to clutter up my desktop or laptop.

About the bag
Incase Camera Pro ($220) is the bag I use for most of my travels and work. It can carry my laptop, all my camera gear, as well as all the little peripherals that I need. I’ve brought it everywhere: Cuba, Tibet, Nepal, Tanzania, NYC, etc. It’s almost 3 years old and no sign of wear. The zippers open up real quick and easy to access everything you need in a quick moment. Love it!
