What is/has been your favorite project to participate on at Expensify?
I enjoy working on the little UI things. And the big UI things.

Mostly app-making. Occasionally, city-exploring.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Oh shut up.
I think I’m a machine that transforms coffee into code. Not sure how it works. But I can tell you for sure that when the coffee drinking stops, the code writing and other associated activities stop as well. It’s weird. So to answer your question, my favorite beverage is coffee.
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
Yes. A ‘craaaack thump’ sound.
What’s your present state of mind?
