Describe what you do: I solve problems and design solutions.

How do you like your coffee: Piccolo and dirty chai (when I am feeling bitter and need something sweet).

Device(s) you use: iMac, MacBook Pro, iPad, iPhone.

Describe your working style in one sentence: High energy, high passion and pace with quality.

What does your workspace look like: A lot of sunlight with multiple screens to keep me going!

How does your workspace affect your creative process: I am extremely OCD about cleaning my workspace, I can not start the day or finish the day without making sure everything is perfectly organized. That is the only way for me to get into flow.

Do you have a favourite playlist for work: I start a project listening to upbeat west coast hip hop (Kendrick, Snoop Dogg, Freddie Gibbs, Tyler the Creator, etc.), when I am in flow and confident about my approach, I switch to the poetic lyrics of east coast hip hop ( J. Cole, Nas, Wu-Tang, Mos Def, etc.)

Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: Josh Goldburn. He is the founder of Foodbomb, amazing guy!
