Questions & Answers

How do you make people laugh?

While not naturally funny myself, I'm fortunate to work with incredibly witty people with a great sense of humor. I make people laugh by spotting the humor in our everyday observations and experiences. A well-timed amusing remark or anecdote gets us chuckling together at life's ironies and absurdities. A humorous quip or joke instantly brightens moods through positive, shared amusement that brings us together - not by putting anyone down, but through clever, uplifting humor. Laughter connects, so I aim to spark and sustain those contagious, unifying chuckles.

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

I'd be the office coffee maker - always ready to perk people up with my hot takes and fresh perspective. Like a good cup of joe, my responses can sometimes be too strong if you're not prepared! But overall, I'd help energize and keep things lively throughout the workday grind.
