What are three words to describe yourself: Confident/Understanding/Nerdy.

What do you love about working from home: I am a creature of comfort. I enjoy the small details of home life and being home more allows me to enjoy it more. Although I am not working in an office, I create method and detail in every component to my day to create routine.

What advice would you give to 18-year-old you: Cut your hair!

If you were allowed to have 5 people, living or dead, in lockdown with you, who would they be: Stephen Fry – to educate and talk me softly to sleep, Barrack Obama – to learn how to not let power go to your head and to be a decent chap, Mr Tumble – keep the kids entertained with his spotty bag, David Bowie – to keep me entertained, Donald Trump – something for me to kick exceedingly hard when I’m feeling stressed (Barrack can help me).

What restaurant are you most looking forward to returning to: Andersons steakkkkkkk.

Celebrity Crush: Anya Chalotra – chick from The Witcher (once she loses the hunchback. Grrrrrrr)

Your Business Heroes are: Steve Jobs – It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.
