What is the most useful item in your workspace?

Undoubtedly, the MacBook Pro is the most useful item in my workspace. It’s the brain that connects everything together and the machine I use to work and build things on a daily basis. It’s incredible how much you can achieve with such a compact device!

How do you spark creativity?

Typically by doing physical activities; either on the gym or taking an outdoor walk to get some fresh air! Both of them are a good way to break the focus allowing my brain to rest and generate space for random thoughts.

What does your typical day look like?

I usually wake up around 08:00, shortly after I enjoy a good bowl of oatmeal porridge packed with protein and then I head straight to the gym for my daily workout, I take a quick shower and then I focus on following my calendar. Whatever I have to do is there, usually blocks of deep work, meetings and rest!
