Questions & Answers

How do you make people laugh?

I am not too big on telling jokes nor do I think of myself as particularly funny. I think if anything, I like to point out the funny parts about things that are already happening.

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

I would choose to be a calculator. I've always liked using them to check any quick math or when an exact answer is needed. They excel at their intended purpose, calculating, and do so quickly and precisely. I would probably pick a scientific calculator as they do most of the important calculations without having so many functions that they get confusing.

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

I often will start my day with making a checklist of what tasks I plan to work on. I like to check things off throughout the day. It also serves as a check at the end of the day to make sure I didn't overlook anything that I needed to do.
