My career started in stupidly sunny South Africa where I spent six years learning and growing as a creative and picking up a little collection of metal along the way. Grey skies and a proper cup of tea lured me home and I moved back to London in December 2015. I'm a completely through-the-line creative and though I love the craft side of writing, there's nothing I like more than getting my teeth stuck into a tricky, conceptual brief.
I'm all about the big idea.
I'm a creative first and a woman second; which sounds a bit wanky and weird, but I genuinely believe that great ideas can come from anywhere and anyone. The 12% stat is outrageous and something I'm ferociously determined to change.
I like to think I can bake and I do a particularly good Chewbacca impression. When I was little I used to want to be in the Famous Five and you're a brave (or foolish) person if you come between me and my Marmite.
