Where did you grow up? When and why did you move to Berlin?
I grew up in South London; a place called Kingston. Being a student fresh from graduating, London can be a tough city. With this in mind I ventured to Berlin after hearing nothing but sweet praise for the place. It seemed to be the happening city of Europe, especially for a young creative. Now I have been here for just under 2 years and can’t imagine living anywhere else!
Why did you apply to work at ic! berlin? Why did you want to work here?
I was intrigued about the company, the handmade in berlin aspect caught my eye at first then after researching the brand I couldn’t get enough.
The morning commute: bus, train, bike or car?
I love my bike. All year round, snow, rain, wind I will be pedalling to work.
What’s at the top of your bucket list (things you have to do before you die)?
To perform a private DJ set to the Queen at the Stadium of Light.
What is your favourite word?
What do you collect?
I have started to collect vinyls since I moved to Berlin. I also have an extensive collection of hangovers since moving here from London...
