• SpotiPeek

    I listen to a lot of different playlists on Spotify and find myself frequently having to restore the Spotify window to see what band’s song is playing or song’s name.

  • Effective communication matters, right?

    Lately, I’ve been finding myself thinking through some complicated problems at work. The kinds of problems we won’t know if we made the right calls on till it’s too late.
