What do you listen to while working?
I’m basically an unpaid brand ambassador for Spotify. They're doing everything right. The curated playlists are absolutely perfect for working to, whether you’re in the mood to focus and need something ambient and atmospheric, or you’re on a deadline and need something hard-hitting and energizing.
What's your Kryptonite?
Twitter and Instagram, though I have a fair amount of self-discipline when necessary.
What's your beverage of choice?
IPA, better yet, double IPA. Either recommended from the bartender or from the nearest brewery in town.
What would you be doing if you weren’t here?
I grew up playing drums, and still teach a local drumline, so if I weren’t designing, I’d probably try to make a career out of playing and teaching music.
When was your best day ever?
What’s the most important part of your evening routine?
Evenings after work are so short, so I value every bit of time I can spend with my family. The most important part of our routine would have to be story time with the kids – a combination of education, entertainment, and laughter.
What valuable lesson did you learn from your parents?
Lead by example. My parents were never outspoken and they never really ever sat me down to teach me any "life lessons" – so I learned by watching. When you lead by example, you give others the opportunity to learn for themselves.
