Commute (how and how long?)
15 – 20 minutes. Down Randolph Road and a quick hop on I-277
What do you do during your commute?
Depends on the day, but almost always music is going. Classical for the days I need to think through ideas / plans. Rap for days I need to get pumped.

Problem-solving (but not math, ew)

Seeing the hard work from our team create results for clients. May sound a bit cheesy, but seeing the needle move in the right direction feels good.
