Q1. What is your earliest memory of working for Telescope?

A1. Running the live vote for BBC Strictly Come Dancing in 2018. I was buzzing and slightly overwhelmed over the amount of glitter and sequins on set.

Q2. What do you like most about your job?

A2. The sense of achievement I get producing such a diverse range of amazing campaigns, albeit sometimes (quite often) under a less than desirable timeframe.

Q3. What was your first job?

A3. First ever:  I worked on a Saturday in Thomas The Baker. First ‘proper’ media job:  I was a moderator on a text/chat TV channel (nothing dodgy!)

Q4. What did you want to be when you grew up?

A4. Possibly an air hostess…  but I knew I was too short.  I wanted to work in TV from a young-ish age, then I realized digital was where it’s at.

Q5. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would purchase?

A5. A big yacht, then I could sail around the world and buy the rest of my houses…

Q6.  What’s your favorite song right now?

A6. Tough question! For right now, I’m going to go with The Streets, Tame Impala – Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better, because it literally brings together two very different groups that I love equally in one single track.

Q7.  What is your favorite thing to do on the weekend?

A7. Socializing with friends, going to gigs, watching stand-up comedy, going out for dinner, countryside walks; the list goes on… However, as most of that isn’t possible right now, I love cooking, exercising and watching aaaall the box sets.

Q8. What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

A8. There is only now, so you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

Q9.  If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

A9. That time-turner Hermione uses in Harry Potter looks pretty handy.  So, the superpower to move back and forth would be useful.

Q10. What app or piece of tech can’t you live without?

A10. Spotify and my noise cancelling headphones – forever drowning out the noise of public transport.
