He was kind enough to tell us his favorite apps and let us capture what’s in his bag so we can scope out the tools of his many trades. Sadly there are no drum sticks.
His favorite apps:
Bitstrips – apparently it’s only old people and kids who use this thing but it’s so funny
Fancy – the world’s most distracting app
Snapchat – nothing like a little bit of peekaboo
- Mac – connects him to the world
- Calculator – he tutors high school students in math and physics through Vergilis so he is always carrying it around
- $6 – lunch dough
- Business Card – in case you liked meeting him
- Chapstick – for moisturizing the money maker
