Why was PR your chosen career?
I’ve always had a passion for reading, writing and the media and PR allows me to immerse myself in all three. I love the small agency environment and being able to work across a variety of different clients. No two days are the same and I’m constantly learning about our clients and their industries. Plus there’s nothing quite as rewarding as generating a great piece of coverage!
If you hadn’t chosen a career in PR what would you be doing?
Possibly something in hospitality. Or writing. Or live music. Or a festival organiser! I’d probably work in a bar. Or set up my own bar. Or live music venue. I’m undecided.
What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
You can never win or lose if you don’t run the race – The Psychedelic Furs/Dad
If you won the lottery, how would you spend it?
I’d treat all my friends and family and take them away to a lovely sunny exotic location. Then I’d travel and see more of the world. Then I’d stop being so selfish and give the rest to worthy charities.
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
I’ve been quite lucky and enjoyed all my jobs up to now. I always enjoyed the bar work and waiting on I did alongside my studies. For a few years I worked in a hotel people often compare to Fawlty Towers with an equally contentious owner! That was certainly an eye opener and taught me a lot about (how not to go about) good hospitality and customer service.
If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
A llama – I think they’re hilarious. They have inventive hairstyles and grin constantly. Just take a moment out of your day to YouTube llamas running. They look like they have so much fun!
If you could, would you live forever and why/why not?
Absolutely not. There’s only so many times you can hear Wonderwall by Oasis.
Who are your top three dinner party guests?
Dave Grohl, Miranda Hart and Wallace and Gromit – they’d count as one, surely?
