What apps/software/tools can’t you live without?
Basecamp. Great for organizing projects.
Coda. It seems I’m always opening that up to make quick changes.
What’s your workspace like?
I generally have my mouse, keyboard, and computer on my desk flanked by a cup of tea and water. I usually have a notepad close by and it wouldn’t be a surprise to find a few sticky notes floating around. I also sit on a big Swiss exercise ball.
What do you listen to while you work?
Everything. I like to graze while I work. Top tracks for an hour or two, classical, bluegrass – just depends on my mood and what I’m working on.
What’s your best time saving trick?
I try not to multitask because I tend not to perform as well. Focus on one thing, get it done, and move on to the next thing.
What’s your favorite to-do list manager?
Other than sticky notes and my Google Calendar? Probably Basecamp.
Besides your phone and computer, what gadget can’t you live without?
Pen and paper. I love to print stuff out and write on it or write my ideas out on a piece of paper first.
What everyday things are you better at than most?
Maintaining a growth mindset. Our abilities are not fixed and we possess the ability to learn anything at any age, under any circumstance.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Think Big. Start Small. Learn Fast.
