What does a typical day involve?
A typical day involves numerous cups of tea, doing digital to the highest standard and usually a F.R.I.E.N.D.S quote at some point.
As an Organic Marketing Manager my family think I’m working with organic vegetables, which is not how I’d personally describe my colleagues…
What do you enjoy most about working at Adido?
While the work is what brought us together, the people really are a fantastic bunch.
Where were you born? What brought you to Adido?
I was born in a lovely place called Solihull in the Midlands. University brought me down to Bournemouth where I fell in love with the place and have been living here since.
What’s your favourite thing about Bournemouth?
After all these years, the sunsets are still breathtaking. Be it from Hengistbury Head, the New Forest or the beach, they really are hard to beat. It’s also nice that we live in this bizarre weather bubble, so the rest of the country can be stormy and windy and we’ll be out in the sunshine.
Tell us something about you that your colleagues don’t know yet!
When we were children, I might have had a hand in breaking my sister’s arm.
What’s the first thing you do when you get into the office?
I pour myself a glass of water and a cup of tea. We also do the routine ‘How are you?’ ‘How was your evening?’ and also discuss what we’re working on today, if we can collaborate etc. It’s nice to see how everyone is – the universal start to a good day.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
A doctor, like my mother. I really get a kick out of helping others. It’s a great feeling.
Tell us about a unique or quirky habit of yours.
Something I’m trying to make into a habit is filming one second of my day, every day. There’s an app called 1 Second Everyday so it’s like a quick video diary. In 10 years I will have filmed just over an hours’ worth of footage.
If you could choose a superpower, what would it be and why?
Definitely the ability to stop time (and not age in the stopped time!) The possibilities for this are endless, and it would allow you to do pretty much everything you could ever want to do in life.
What is the best piece of advice you have received?
To not lose perspective on things. Challenges arise that seem huge at the time, but when put into perspective they really are quite minuscule and don’t deserve dwelling upon.
What is something you learned in the last week?
Tablet devices don’t appreciate being dropped on the floor.
What song do you sing in the shower?
'I have nothing' by Whitney Houston. Go big or go home. My poor housemates’ ears.
At the weekend I love…
...getting out of the house; I get very restless if I’m inside for too long. I feel very productive using my time to get out into the countryside and I’m a big fan of exploring new places. My National Trust card is something I use a lot too as a backup when the weather isn’t so good (which is often!).
