Tell us about your role.

I help various things run smoothly in the office.

What’s your favorite thing about the work you do?

No day is the same. Projects I work on and the people I talk to all vary each day. It’s great!

A work station with a computer, monitor, notebook, and wireless mouse and keyboard.

What’s the most interesting project you’ve worked on at Astropad?

Planning our company retreat in California! I could spend hours looking at rental properties and restaurants.

Walk us through your daily routine…

Coffee, emails and Slack, snack, project, lunch, project, snack, project. Pretty clear theme here.

What tools do you use to stay productive?

Luna Display (obviously!), Trello, iPhone reminders, good-ole-fashioned paper day planner, and color-coding.

What do you do when you’re in a creative rut?

Move. Go for a walk, do some yoga, or clean.
