What is your favorite item in your workspace?
I love the Opal C1 Camera. The build and image quality is just outstanding. The Logitech MX Vertical also saved my wrists and helped with my carpal tunnel so I’ll forever be indebted to that mouse.
How do you spark creativity?
I love to collect inspiration before creating. Creativity for me comes from being inspired.
How do you keep the work-life balance?
Still figuring this one out but I do love to travel and those moments when I’m out exploring the world, I feel the most grounded and connected.
