Why did you choose True?

I chose True because I believe in making traditional retail relevant. As a consumer, I felt that working for a business that grows the most relevant and exciting brands, in a better way, would never become boring.

How would you describe your job to a five-year-old?

I’m a writer and a storyteller: I share exciting news about brands and people’s jobs.

What do you love most — and least — about your job?

I love it when we get feedback on events the community has enjoyed attending, or newsletters they’ve found interesting to read. I least like doing budgets.

Name an idea or company that reimagined a business or industry — one you wish you’d thought of.

Airbnb. I think their mission to ‘open up communities to make anyone feel they belong’ resonates strongly with my own feelings towards cultures, travel and inclusivity. I really enjoy travelling and have met some fascinating hosts and people through Airbnb.

Which person or people helped shape and inspire who you are today?

I’m a family person through and through and I take inspiration and lessons from those closest to me.
