Favorite Part of My Job

Interacting with clients, team members, and industry peers who share similar ideals


What do you do that helps you feel balanced in your life ?

 try to preserve enough flexibility in my schedule to promote opportunities for spontaneity, whether it be with my family, friends, or by myself on a regular basis.


What's the one work/tool technology that you could not live without and why?

I should say smartphone because it keeps me portable as well; but a part of me is advocating for Adobe PDF Editor because it allows me to graphically communicate thoughts quickly and completely to team members
