Stay small and nimble!

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love podcasts and anything audio!

Favorite thing about coworking:

I love the fact that it is EXACTLY what I need. I travel most of the time, and my teams are all out East so it gives me a cool, creative space where I can get solid work done.
