What is your favorite kind of pen/pencil?

The old Zendesk office supply pens. Papermate gel 0.7

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

Yes. Ambient electronica if I’m not fucking around. Also Duel of the Fates at least once a week.

Boba - yes or no?


What do you do when you run out of creative energy?

Take a nap

If you could intern in another department or position at Zendesk, what would it be?

Gotta be Workplace Experience. I want to set up all the chairs for Townhall.

What’s been your proudest moment since joining Zendesk?

Probably when we dropped the Re-Introducing Zendesk and it got featured by Wine After Coffee channel on Vimeo. I was really proud of my work on that video and it was awesome to collab with David Stanfield, one of my motion heroes.

What word or phrase do you most overuse at work?

“Let us consult the runes!”
