Questions & Answers

How do you make people laugh?

In casual dialogue, sometimes it is fun to give a response that purposely misunderstands the situation - it can be funny in the moment and can upgrade an otherwise typical conversation.

If you were a tool or piece of equipment, what would you be and why?

I'd choose to be a welder - able to be used by someone to take existing parts and combine them into something new. Often used to repair and extend the life of another machine, or to make a new device altogether, welders are key to bringing novel ideas to reality.

What's your favorite productivity hack or time-saving trick?

I like to find small chunks of time throughout the day to perform maintenance, clean up or other tasks that would be an unpleasant chore if left to the end of the day/project. That way I can trick myself into doing more work because it was merged into the main event. Example - putting tools away when finished with each task during the course of a project. At the end of the project, all the tools are already put away!
