What does your office space look like?
My work office space looks like an explosion. Paper is scattered everywhere with illegible yellow notes stuck all over my desk top monitor. When I'm not in the office, I stuff my work into a duffle bag and work at a coffee shop…or attempt to work from my desk at home.

I listen to a variety of music while I work. My iTunes loop Drizzy Drake, Childish Gambino and Imagine Dragons on the regular.

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
I make lists on loose pieces of paper. I also make lists of daily task in my phone and email myself. I'm weird.

Always carry a pocket sized sketchbook. Sketching and jotting on the go make me feel better about my days.

…trouble shooting and un-jamming the office Xerox machine. I'm a genius!
