What apps or tools are essential to your daily workflow?

Todoist,, Google Calendar.

What does your workspace look like?

As tidy as I can make it, double monitors for efficiency, more traditional furniture than my taste, but I didn’t buy the desk.

How do you keep track of your calendars/deadlines?

A combo of Todoist, Google, and ifttt to make sure things appear and reappear regularly.

What’s your coffee service setup? (Other beverages are fine, of course, but you should really be serving coffee!)

There’s a Keurig in the office, but I’m one of those non-coffee drinking heretics. Tea is more my jam.

What is one thing that you listen to/read/watch that everyone should?

My favorite non-legal podcast, 99% Invisible. I’ve learned the best things from that.

What’s your favorite local place to network or work solo?

NYSBA ‘s headquarters are local to me in Albany, so I’m there a lot doing events in my various roles.

What are three things you do without fail every day?

Shower, watch or read local news, and swear more than I should.

Who else would you like to see answer these questions?
