Describe what you do: I’m a rhythm and creativity coach, podcast host and writer.

How do you like your coffee: I can’t actually drink coffee so instead I get an almond chai latte or black English Breakfast tea. Much better for the adrenals haha.

Device(s) you use: I’m an Apple slave and use a MacBook Air, iPhone and iPad depending on what I’m doing work-wise.

Describe your working style in one sentence: Intuitive, and following my personal rhythm.

What does your workspace look like: My workspace is bright, colourful and slowly filling up with books. Before a coaching session, you’ll always find incense and candles lit, and a warm cup of tea close by.

I love having collecting pieces that are attached to specific memories, and displacing them in my workspace/dining room helps create a sense of comfort and inspiration.

How does your workspace affect your creative process: While I like to think that I can work from anywhere with WIFI and a power point, I absolutely work better, and am much more creative, when the space aligns with my personal aesthetic.

Natural lighting, close proximity to nature and handmade treasures all are non-negotiable. I also find that having past references of my work helps kickstart my creative process, as they serve as a gentle reminder that I can be, and am, a creative person.

Do you have a favourite playlist for work: Yes, I love working and creating to a playlist I made for Rust, Flow State.

Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: Racquel Helmers of Rackers & Co.
