What is your favorite item in your workspace?
My Bose headphones. I need music to work. These headphones feel good even when I’m wearing them for hours on end, and shield me from everything around me.
How do you spark creativity?
Something that works surprisingly well for me: Going for a run, listening to an audiobook and leaving little room for creativity. It’s always in these moments that seemingly unrelated ideas spark. I’m that runner who always stops to jot notes into my smartphone…
How do you keep the work-life balance?
I don’t. Two small kids, different types of work, and lest we forget: a pandemic make it impossible anyway. I just try to prioritize what’s most important in the moment. I’ve never been a fan of juxtaposing work and life — work is part of life and shouldn’t be a burden that you constantly need to balance out.
