Why was PR your chosen career?
I’ve always been interested in writing, so I toyed with the idea of journalism at one point, but then thought that a career in PR might be a bit more varied. I think I was right, and since working in PR I’ve realised how much I enjoy creating content besides traditional things like press releases, such as blogs and infographics.
If you hadn’t chosen a career in PR what would you be doing?
I’d be an extra on TV. You know, pretending to look busy and that kind of stuff…
What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
“The comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing grows there.”
If you won the lottery, how would you spend it?
I’d buy houses all over the world and stay at whichever one I felt like at the time, inviting family and friends to come and stay.
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Being a waiter wasn’t the highlight of my life so I now have maximum respect for anyone who works in hospitality. I also worked in a shoe shop at one point and saw more than my fair share of manky feet; luckily that was only a brief job!
If you were an animal what would you be and why?
I’d probably say a Kangaroo. They just seem to have such a fun life bouncing around and they live in a country I’d love to visit again.
If you could, would you live forever and why/why not?
I wouldn’t want to live forever but I think it would be good to keep popping back after I die, until the robots and cockroaches took over.
Who are your top three dream dinner party guests?
