What is your favorite kind of pen/pencil?

Hands down, Pilot P-700 pens. Fine point, 0.7mm. I special order them on the internet and guard them with my life.

What’s the view from your desk?

I rarely sit at my desk, but when I do, I stare at my laptop screen. I have a big screen, but I don’t really use it.

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

I have a highly curated Pandora thanks to years of hitting thumbs up or thumbs down on certain things. However, when I’m writing I typically listen to instrumental things. Classical and jazz are typical, but sometimes I throw a wrench in things with some angry punk rock.

What word or phrase do you most overuse at work?

Dax them sklounst.
