So in my former life before I became a mom to 3 awesome kids, I had a career as an artist in San Francisco, California. I was represented by Hang at the Canvas, Joseph Chowning Gallery and the SF MOMA Rental Gallery, and had a blast showing at many non-profit art spaces all over the city. I also was part of a group of poets who met every single week, for over 3 years while I was a part of it. I combined my “Office Poems” with black & white paintings I did inspired by polaroids taken from my office building in the financial district, where I was a bored and lonely office manager, long before standing desks existed. I have to think if I had a standing desk, I would have been so much happier and less sluggish. In a serendipitous way, I find my life has continued to focus on life in the office, although now I'm selling this hot tech accessory at a super fun startup. I’m repurposing some of the weathered desks and giving them new life as art desks.

Back pain is very common and can be aggravated by actions at the office. Prevent back pain and find good posture with these simple steps.
STANDING POSTURE. If you work at a standing desk, stand with feet hip width apart and tuck your pelvis slightly. Relax your shoulders, and keep your elbows at a 90-degree angle. Pro-Tip: It’s so important to stand on an anti-fatigue mat.
Here’s the thing – I’ve been out of college and sitting in my office cubicle for 2 years and then I took the leap of faith to transition to a sit/stand desk. I read somewhere on some blog on some fitness site that even if I work out – it still would not take away the harmful effects of sitting on my behind all day
