Describe what you do: I am the co-founder and CEO of Trust Insights. We are a marketing and data science consultancy I oversee the growth and strategy and work to bring AI to the masses in a consumable way.

How do you like your coffee: In abundance. Hazelnut if available, but generally medium roast with non-dairy creamer.

Device(s) you use: I use my MacBook Pro and Android Phone to conquer the world.

Describe your working style in one sentence: Organized, a bit OCD, and transparent – I don’t like surprises or loose ends.

What does your workspace look like: Lots of dog hair. It’s otherwise mostly clutter-free except for some fidget toys (I can’t sit still during meetings) and lots of wires. Sometimes I work from the kitchen or the deck if I need a change of scenery.

How does your workspace affect your creative process: I can’t work if my desk is disorganized and I can’t focus if my dogs are not snoring at my feet. If those things are out of place I get super distracted.

Do you have a favourite playlist for work: It really depends on the day. Sometimes it’s a “deep focus” playlist, other times it’s metal, punk, or R&B.

Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: Gini Dietrich, CEO of Spin Sucks.
