What I read

I read lifestyle or business-oriented blogs; a lot of my pleasure reading comes from email newsletters anymore! (#sad) I do love TED talks, though, and one of my favorite speakers is Sir Ken Robinson.

Side projects

I'm in the beginning stages of my own blog/side hustle, Saturday Spent Well. SSW is a blog and (eventual) platform with a focus on mindfulness in the digital age - in a practical way - emphasizing wellness in your business practices. Link in profile.

Ideal team

I find that I work best on small teams with a low-key management and client base. I collaborate best when I have something to bring to the table, and I won't have anything if I don't get a chance to work on it.
