What’s on your desk­top to­day?

The manda­tory MacBook. LaCie disks, a G-RAID disk and a thun­der­bolt SSD reader for video and pho­tog­ra­phy.

What do you have on the walls?

A poster by Viggo Vagnby that shows a po­lice of­fi­cer stop­ping the traf­fic so a fam­ily of ducks can cross the street.

What hours do you work?

We are all very self-man­aged, so it de­pends. A lot of com­pa­nies be­lieve the key to pro­duc­tiv­ity is strict work hours, but I think it’s more im­por­tant to trust

in the peo­ple you work with.

What else do you do

in the of­fice?

Where do I start? The of­fice is our sec­ond home and fam­ily. We are a small of­fice, so we are very so­cial. We cook and drink to­gether, and we play a lot of games – es­pe­cially on Fri­days, along with beers.

How of­ten do you all hang out?

There is al­ways a lot to do here in New York, and peo­ple are very proac­tive about so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties. This sum­mer we had the Hello Mon­day Sum­mer Olympics, which cul­mi­nated in an epic go-kart race (I won the en­tire thing, by the way).

De­scribe your work­ing cul­ture in three words

Pas­sion­ate, play­ful and curious.
