What are you looking at?

Currently I am looking at a TV show and a book. (Not at the same time though; that’d be crazy). The TV show is the legendary anime series One Piece. The show is amazing and I highly recommend it, but it is a whopping 1000+ episodes. I am only on episode 150, so wish me luck!

The book I am reading right now is Dune. I am one of the people who after watching the recent movie adaptation decided to read the book. This is another legendary series that paved the way for a lot of sci-fi concepts we see today, so I guess you could say I am on that legendary content ride right now 😉

What are you listening to?

Spotify is my vehicle for all music and podcasts and I love making playlists. I tend to listen to one playlist on repeat but some of my favorite genres are hip-hop and indie rock. The most notable artists I am listening to right now are MF DOOM, Tame Impala, Glass Animals, Beastie Boys and Phantogram.

What are you looking at?
I’m scouring the internet in search of a life-changing corn soufflé recipe for Christmas. In the meantime, I’m trying to conjure the attention span to re-read Dune after seeing the movie — all while spam-clicking the “buy now” button to see if I can beat out scalper bots to get a graphics card before 2023 rolls around.

What are you listening to?
A smattering of Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History, 99% Invisible, Lo-fi hip-hop, and The Strokes Mix (if you know, you know).

Tips for Filling Out a Great Client Brief

As we approach the season of gratitude, we’ve been reflecting on what makes us, well, grateful. And yes, our list includes the usual suspects — health, jobs, clients, family, friends, nurses, teachers, technology — but we also want to shoutout an unsung hero in our jobs that can make all the difference when working toward a successful project execution: the Client Brief.
