What is your favorite kind of pen/pencil?

I really love Micron pens and having a wide variety of widths is fantastic. The reality is that I rarely have a micron pen and generally resort to finding something that writes.

What’s the view from your desk?

From my desk I see a very strong glare on my monitor from the bright light of Market street. I get to have a great window spot on the 3rd floor of our HQ, but my back is to the window and the glare is a real thing.

Do you listen to music while you work? What kind?

I wish I listened to music while I worked. I like to think I do but it doesn’t actually happen all that much. I find myself having a hard time focussing when I have music on, but I love when we play music as a team over our speakers in the Creative department. It creates good vibes and encourages impromptu dance-offs, etc…

What word or phrase do you most overuse at work?

I’m sure there are a lot of words I use a ton that I’m unaware of. It may be a better question for the people I work with. One thing I find myself saying a lot is yeah, but not just saying it once. “Yeah, yeah”. It just rolls off the tongue in pairs. Try it. Yeah yeah. I always say “yeah, yeah”.
