What motivates you to succeed in your job?
Riches and fame. Actually, I love what I do. I get to constantly learn new things, solve problems, and work with people who feel the same about their work. I’ve owned businesses, my husband owns a business, and I really enjoy helping other businesses bring their vision to the web.
What is on your work music playlist?
I like to work in silence. No really, I prefer it to be quiet. Unless I need to get something out the door immediately and need to get energized, then I have a “dance” playlist that includes but is not limited to Disclosure, TEED, Client, and Daft Punk.
Favorite Portland eatery?
Yoko’s. Best sushi in town (and it helps that I can see it from my living room window).
