What is your favorite item in your workspace?

My favorite item is probably my keyboard. I’m a mechanical keyboard fan and this is the best one I’ve used. The switches are amazing and build quality is top notch. I also love my MacBook Pro. It’s completely replaced my desktop for any sort of work. It handles everything I need it to with absolute ease.

How do you spark creativity?

I use my posters to spark creativity. I’m a Disney Park fanatic and am always so inspired by the love and imagination that does into creating these experiences. I love the idea of pushing technical boundaries while creating unique experiences that people will cherish.

How do you keep the work-life balance?

Sometimes keeping a work life balance is hard. I have my gaming/relaxing space combined with my work space. Sometimes I feel guilty I'm playing Minecraft or Elden Ring instead of programming. Having my laptop as my primary machine for working and my desktop for gaming has been a huge help. I eventually want to create a dedicated space for relaxing and gaming, but this works for the time being!
