Name: Paul Rose

What motivates you to do what you do?
I’ve been designing and building web since I was about 13, it’s a true passion of mine. I love that I have the skills to envision a site or product, and then build it. The creativity and freedom that the web offers is fantastic.
How do you start your mornings?
It depends where I’m working that day. If it’s from home, it’s usually a slow start to the day with no alarm clock. I like to read with a coffee when I wake up and ease into the day with a decent breakfast before getting started on my to-do list for the day which I usually plan out the night before. If I’m working at a clients office that day, it’s up early and head off as soon as I’m ready. My current contracted client is about a 45-minute commute, so picking a good playlist to drive to is essential!
