What does your typical day look like?

Given the fast-paced environment at the Fridge, things change so quickly around here. Each day comes with new projects and priorities - and no two days look the same. From meetings and calls to strategizing with the team, and travel, in the two years I've been here, it's safe to say that each day is different.
