Hi Work Awesome!
My name is Tina Su. That’s me on the right. The little smiling boy I’m holding is my son, Ryan.
I’m the proud new owner here on Work Awesome. I just wanted to spend a moment to say hello and to introduce myself.
I used to work as a Software Engineer for amazon.com, and later as a User Experience Designer. Somewhere along my cubical existence at amazon, I became obsessed with the topic of happiness, productivity and personal motivation.
In 2007, I began writing on these topics, sharing the life lessons I’ve learned on my blog–Think Simple Now. In 2008, I left my fulltime job to focus on my blog, thus transitioning into my new career as a professional blogger and online publisher. This is what I do today.
I am passionate about many things: helping people lead happy lives is at the top of that list. And I am extremely honored to be able to oversee the direction for Work Awesome. I really want to maintain the current publication quality, and directing it such that the site continues to be a valuable resource to help you work happily and productively.
This site is about you and I am committed to creating the best experience for you. As such, please take a minute to tell me what type of content will make you happy via this quick survey.
More Personal Stuff
Besides being passionate about my family, and writing. I am also passionate about photography. I wrote about my journey to becoming a pro photographer here: Dreams Come True. I am also passionate about Apple products.
My husband is a commercial photographer and he teaches me all the technical things that I never learned as a self-taught photographer. Jeremy is also an aspiring filmmaker. We hope to put up many more videos with motivational content later this year.
I’m currently focused on finishing a book on Life Purpose.

I wanted to introduce to you my friend Pooja who helps me run Think Simple Now. She will be leading the publication on Work Awesome and will be helping me to keep this site even more awesome and beautiful.
Interestingly, Pooja also used to work as a Software Engineer before pursuing her love for writing full-time (perhaps that’s why there are so few women in engineering—writing took them all!).
Pooja lives in Melbourne, Australia. She blogs at Of Parchments & Inks.
