If you weren’t in this career, what would you be?
If I wasn’t in this career, I would like to be a producer. Specifically, producing for my partner who is a freelance performance artist. I love the arts but it is a very confusing and privileged sector. Combining that with my love for organisation and helping neurodivergent artists, it would be great to help them navigate through a neurotypical world and help put on some amazing shows.
What advice would you give your 20 year old self?
If you are struggling with your mental wellbeing, remember nothing is ever as ‘urgent’ as it is made out to be, that email can wait. Put yourself and your brain first. Your work will be 100x better when you are feeling good. Also, ask the ‘stupid’ questions. I always say to younger colleagues they’re my favourite type of questions. Never be afraid to ask for help.
Animals with CGI human mouths that speak in films have been a low point for humanity. Why do people think it’s cute? it’s absolutely hideous and I just don’t understand it! Do I sound mad about it? It’s because I am.
