Questions & Answers

How do you make people laugh?

When the chance presents itself, I like to use a pun. I generally try to look for the best times to bring some humanity into interactions, allowing for more meaningful jokes and hopefully a boost to everyone's day!

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

If I was a tool I would likely be a Lathe. Traditionally Lathes are capable of modifying or replicating themselves to be better or more capable, and also are used to create other tooling required for different types of tasks. I believe that a tool such as that mirrors my passion for learning new skills and developing to accomplish the task at hand.

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

I use prioritized to do lists, as simple as just a Bullitt list, and as complex as a Gantt chart depending on the complexity of what I am trying to accomplish, adapting to the needs of the day. This allows me to be flexible while still getting things done.
