Hi! I'm Dave, and I'm a Jira admin. 👋
Glad you asked! I help teams on Community and off Community with their project, work, and knowledge management challenges. As a recovering project manager, I sport project management habits that I enjoy sharing with others. Every playground needs rules so no one gets hurt. Likewise, work teams need working agreements to ensure the free flow of information, labor, and beer. Always beer. 🍻
Nope! Aside from some of Atlassian's products, I love coffee. One of my favorite cafes to work from is Republique of Coffee in Paris. Nowadays, I pretend I'm working there by staring at their Instagram, @republiqueofcoffee and sighing a lot.
Lately I've been downing a lot of 787 Coffee's rum espresso. Yes, rum espresso! It's a treat; you can taste notes of rum, and there's no alcohol in it. Go to their NYC East Village location and tell them I sent you! (I guarantee they'll be confused.)
p.s. I also love smartphones. I rock keyboarded devices - a rare breed - but I've used everything under the sun. (I miss being a blue bubble sometimes.) Portable electronic devices let me carry a ton of novels in my pocket, and even read them sometimes. Back when I had a long subway commute, this was key. 📱
