    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] @ figma.com.
    3. One app that has changed my life is https://www.getspar.com/. 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 :)
