A little about myself:
I’m a passionate person by nature, which means I’m not afraid to speak my mind when it comes to important things like environmental conservation, political issues and why the US version of the The Office is infinitely better than the UK one.
Oh, and I’m WME’s resident Annoying Vegan™. I know, I know; there’s always gotta be that one person…
When was the first time you heard about the internet?
I first heard about the internet when my cousin showed me MSN Messenger and Habbo Hotel on her computer when I was around 11 years old. To say it blew my tiny mind is an understatement. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an internet connection at home for another year, but I was a savvy kid so I didn’t let that stop me from having my fun. Instead, I opened a Word document and began writing Messenger conversation scripts. To myself. For hours on end. It wasn’t the same.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
We’re lucky to have a big office filled with incredible people who are all very, very good at what they do. The most rewarding part for me is being able to learn from everyone around me as we work together on campaigns.
In my spare time I like cycling with friends, watching a good documentary and painting (even though I’m really, really bad at it).
I first realised that I loved writing when I started a Home & Away fan-fiction blog at the age of 13. Everyone has to start somewhere, right?
