Describe what you do: I’m an Engineering Manager at Buffer, we are a fully distributed company building a platform to help companies build their brands online. On the side I am also doing Leadership Coaching, and writing on my book, that hopefully will be ready soon.
How do you like your coffee: Filter coffee definitely black, and every other type without sugar.
Device(s) you use: Most of the time a MacBook Pro 16″ connected to a 4k Asus Monitor, iPad Pro (for on the go), iPhone X
Describe your working style in one sentence: Due to our distributed nature my mornings start with catching up on what happened and checking in with APAC team members, most of the time I also use it to write and work on heads down tasks.
I have a long lunch break that I use for personal stuff, and then start into the afternoon until evening to collaborate and chat with team members in the US.
What does your workspace look like: My MacBook Pro is connected to one big monitor that I only sometimes use, mostly for video calls as my webcam is on top of the monitor. I have a Mic on a boom arm, and two Elgato Key Lights, to create the best video call settings possible. A glass of water and normally also a cup of coffee are next to that.
Do you have a favourite playlist for work: Jazz Hip Hop by Johnny Jazzmatazz.
Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My friend Laïla von Alvensleben.
