'I think one of the biggest pluses of working for yourself is being able to work in different locations. While I love my studio, I like that when I want to marathon some bad television and get through a tedious project, I can stay at home, drink some tea and hang out with my cats. I don’t like working at the studio super late since most of my studio mates and building friends keep pretty regular hours, so when I have to pull a late night it’s usually from home. I’m also an avid coffee shop worker, mostly for REALLY tedious work like css editing and font kerning.'
