Role: Managing Director
Which app or program do you check first thing in the morning?
Twitter. I can’t get enough of the microblogging app. I’m not a big fan of social media overall, but I certainly have the Twitter bug.
What does your typical day look like?
Normally it’s a very early start. I arrive at the office for about 6:30am to prepare for the day ahead. I’m fortunate really because I don’t have typical days. The team and I could be working on our latest social media campaign, building new sites, meeting amazing people or working on our nominated charity, called Bibic.
Which app can’t you live without?
I’m not sure you can call Siri an app – but that would have to be mine. Siri and I are developing a serious relationship. The office normally hides behind their computers when I start a sentence with “Siri set timer….”. Have you ever asked Siri what zero divided by zero is? Try it out sometime.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Sorry. What’s that?
Who is your professional inspiration?
Well he may not be real, but it’s Captain Picard from Star Trek The Next Generation. I love his brains and wit. I also love that fact that when brains and wit fails, there’s a trigger happy Klingon at tactical.
What is your favourite film?
Normally when I answer this question in interviews I stick to what I know. I’d have to say any of the Star Treks really. Except the odd numbered Trek films. We don’t talk about those ever…
However here’s a little known fact about me. If you’d asked the question “What’s your favourite film outside of the Star Trek franchise?” I’d have to answer Legally Blonde. I’m obsessed. I’ve been to see the West End production several times and even picked up a couple of amateur productions of it also. Why? I love the story of the underdog (and that cast helps too).
What TV show/s are you currently watching?
House of Cards. I’m a huge fan of anything involving the White House. The acting, drama and storyline is amazing.
Blacklist. Spy drama with a character that I’m naming my next dog after. Dembe!
And I’m re-watching The West Wing. That show is second to none. I’ve watched it back to back several times and always learn something new.
What’s on your music playlist at the moment?
My office won’t thank you for that question at all. We have an office playlist on my iPhone which involves Star Trek and Rachel Platten.
Rachel even tweeted me this year. It was very exciting.
Outside of dating, which brand do you admire the most?
I’m a huge fan of the Logitech brand. I love their products and I admire how they style their adverts and videos.
Who should we follow on Twitter?
Oh that’s simple. If you really want to get to know me follow some of my team @MissDaniMeme, @Megan_Kuhnel & @ClintonReabow. They’ll keep you amused for hours. Oh and have you met our office pet @CrocTweets?
Best advice you have received?
“What we leave behind is not as important as how we’ve lived.”
Do you have any productivity tips?
Mess creates stress. Clear off your desk every now and again. You’ll get more done and feel good about it.
