    Ha, good questions!

    1. We've heard a lot of requests for this since launching 2.0 and it's something the team is talking about! Stay tuned!
    2. Currently exploring a variety of ways to build on top of Figma. We're biased towards building a web API first to get data out of Figma which we think would unlock a bunch of awesome use cases. If you would be interested in developing on top of a Figma API, ping me! [my first name] @
    3. One app that has changed my life is Basically it helps you get motivated to build new habits through mechanisms like social accountability, competition and loss aversion. It made me go from a sedentary lifestyle to marathon training.
    4. Definitely my mom's homemade blackberry ice cream :) I grew up in Northern California where there are a lot of wild blackberries and I love this time of year because I associate it with picking blackberries and making pie / ice cream.
    5. We just had a "variety show" (talent optional) at Figma. Was super fun and it was amazing to see how much talent there was on the Figma team! This year I had a small solo (just a few measures) and I think I sort of convinced the team I could sing :)
