Something that drives me crazy 😵‍💫 🤬

Meetings that could have been emails and "hello" in slack. IYKYK.

One thing that might surprise you about me…

I've been told I'm a lot more intense than my first impression gives off.

The first time you see me excited about something.

A fun fact about me is…

😜 I can throw a javelin really far :)

Also, I can read super fast. World Top 1%.

When I'm stressed, you might notice me…

Shut down and close off. It's usually pretty noticeable.

Explain you've noticed me acting differently and ask what's up / what help I need.

I really admire teammates who are…

Kind, driven and take an ‘everyone chops wood and fetches water’ approach.

I think great teams care less about what their job title or role prescribes they do and more about what just needs doing. People stepping outside of role, for the good of the whole team energizes me.

My Achilles Heel is…

Impatience.

Help show me perspective (perhaps the thing I'm worried about isn't actually that important!) or help lift the roadblock with me!

Teammates might misunderstand me as...

Chaotic and clumsy.

I think its to do with how I communicate when I get excited about an idea. Sometimes I can flit around a lot. I can struggle to get my words out when my instincts are running hot and I'm excited about something. If you aren't used to working with me this can be a bit distracting I think.

Epic work fails

My first-ever twitter ad campaign brought 200k people to our landing page!!

Most fulfilling project I've worked on

Building Candor. No doubt.

It's a weirdly perfect combination of my ideal environment, stage, and mission in a role that challenges me every day to grow. I spend most of my time figuring new things out and I get to do that with a team who all give a shit. I absolutely love it.

The best environment for me is:

time for deep work in the AMspace for deep work in the PM< 2 meetings

It takes me a while to find my flow sometimes and will suddenly flick into ADHD hyperfocus at peculiar times of day.
