What do you do?
I'm a product designer, which means I solve problems for people through our product. It happens to be a really fun way to help a lot of people at scale.
I like to consider myself a "pragmatic creative", which is why I chose design. For me, there needs to be a constant back and forth between thinking about constraints but also thinking about new opportunity. If I find myself in one of those modes for too long, I know it's time to switch.
How do you feel right now?
Hopeful for the year! 2020 was obviously a rough one for most of us, but 2021 should definitely be brighter. I’m excited to get back to having lunch with friends and traveling.
In a time of crisis, how do you maintain your creative practice?
A lot of intention. Building great morning and evening routines that are focused on what you need most are key. For me, that means getting some quiet time in the morning, sneaking in a workout, and reviewing my day before I start.
