Describe what you do: I’m the co-founder and CEO at the Dark, a programming language for building web backends.

How do you like your coffee: Black. I love our coffee pot which does pourer or French Press.

Device(s) you use: 13‑inch MacBook Pro and iPhone 11 Pro.

Describe your working style in one sentence: I work best when I’m in the flow, so I take advantage of that whenever I can, often it’s first thing in the morning.

What does your workspace look like: In the current world climate, everything is a bit different. My husband and I are both working from home, and most of the time I’m working at a small table in a back room of our house, on a picnic table bench.

Do you have a favourite playlist for work: Nope. I prefer silence when working.

Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My brother, Stephen!
