Questions & Answers

How do you make people laugh?

Take the time to note there are people behind all of this! Don't take things too seriously, find the goofiness in work and in life.

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

A dial indicator. It is a great example of a versatile piece of precision equipment using clever mechanical techniques and thoughtful setup. As similar, I enjoy using clever techniques and methodologies to solve complex problems.

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

Aren't we all going to answer ChatGPT? I find it most helpful for brainstorming as many options as possible, leveraging, and then disseminating ideas for complex and nuanced topics. If I can't answer ChatGPT, I find it extremely beneficial to set aside working time with someone else, even if they are unfamiliar with the task at hand. The ability to talk through and verbalize ideas can dramatically speed up tasks, especially when convoluted, complex, or nuanced.
