A word to define what kind of worker you are:

What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc..)
My favourites are my laptop (an old Toshiba Satellite), my portable Canon G12 camera and an iPod – a full, portable studio.

What does your office space look like?
It depends on what day (or night) it is. It could look like a classroom, a studio, an office or home on the couch. It’s great to be able to work anywhere.

What kind of music do you listen when you are working?
I love music and collect a lot of different kinds – in the studio it could be classical, electronic, soundtrack, alternative – atmosphere and mood are important. Claude Debussey, Anders Trentemøller, David Lynch, Pixies, Jack White and hundreds more!

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
A routine is useful, but change feeds creativity. I find regular small tasks add up to larger achievements.

What tips would you give to improve productivity ?
Keep working and keep looking – one informs the other.

You’re better than your colleagues to :
Never thinking I’m better.

What is the best advice anyone has given you ?
Unfortunately I have forgotten it. Maybe it was ‘eat healthy and exercise’. I’m going to act on that advice one day soon.

What is your best tip for saving time ?
Spend it thoughtfully.

What is your routine start and end of the day ?
It’s a fight between wanting to sleep and thinking through new ideas.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not go without?
I’m often leaving my gadgets behind so I’m learning to live without most of them. I guess, more recently, my camera is the most important to my creative work.
