A brief description of your career history?

I have pretty much been doing sales since the day I could talk. From selling colourful shoelaces and chocolate at the school playground to selling advertising space for the largest classified website in Australia and the UK.

What makes you ‘now’ in technology?

Well, let’s just say I pretty much discovered Youtube, Facebook and Snapchat before anyone else. I am always at the forefront of new technology especially social networking and apps.

What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?

The sound of ‘work work work work work’ by Rihanna from my alarm clock.

What do you see as the next big game changer within the Digital Media and Technology industry?

I guess it would have to be phone technology, the possibilities are endless and the more we rely on our phones, the more we can incorporate our everyday activities on our devices.

What is your greatest achievement? (This could be either work or personal)

It would have to be moving to Australia! 

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

Apart from wanting to be famous for no reason, I have always wanted to be a singer. I was a Britney impersonator in primary school talent shows.

What is your favourite quote?

‘Veni, vidi, vici’ -  Julius Ceaser

If you could invite 5 people to dinner who would they be?

Beyonce, David Attenborough, My dad, Queen Elizabeth I and Jesus.
