285 - Andy Chung
The previous homeowner of this space was a woodturner who had built her workshop behind the primary house. He now uses the space as the Read.cv office, with some extra desks for when my co-founder Mehdi visits or any friends want to come through and hang out for the day.

Why did you start Read.cv and what is the biggest problem you currently face?
I started Read.cv out of a personal need for a simple 1 pager that communicated my interests, projects, and work experience in one place. It has evolved into a platform to share your work with others in a way that feels genuine, not transactional. Our biggest challenge right now is keeping up with all the feature requests, which is a good problem to have.
How do you spark creativity?
Take time to discover new music, spend time with friends, or travel somewhere new. Basically breaking the routine of working on software.
How do you manage work-life balance?
I've never been the type of person who can work 12+ hours a day and have it be efficient. Typically I can get around 4 hours of deep work done a day and then I'm at my limit. I keep this top of mind and make sure I take time out of my day to get outside for a hike, bike ride, or hang with friends.
