What does an average workday look like for you?

''First I deal with the awesome commute to work in LA. If I bring lunch I will put it in the communal fridge at our office and chit chat with our office neighbors. I do some work, make some calls, mess with my colleagues, then eat lunch. Sometimes we like to walk to a local restaurant, which we have a lot of choices being in El Segundo. Then it is pretty much back to work and go home. That is a typical day in the office which I have about 2-3 a week. The other days I am traveling to local Film and Game studios for visits or demos.''
