Goodness. Gracious. Why is writing so hard! Since re-launching my site, I’ve set a personal goal to write at least once a week. I gave myself a soft-pass this week, as I sorta missed my goal by a bit. But I was busy!

So here’s to more posts, and definitely more doodles!
P.S. If you have any tips or feedback, please feel free to send em my way!
Oh wow, talk about a facelift! Black & pink have always been one of my favourite color combos. Not to mention, I’ve always wanted a dark site!
Recently, I had a catch-up chat with a product designer colleague from work (his name is Buzz and he is awesome). One of the things we talked about was the various things I did at Help Scout.
This year, I started mentoring at Out of Office Hours. I’ve had multiple sessions, and one very interesting thing I’ve noticed is that every single person I’ve spoken to has said…
