I’m a front-end developer and occassional designer at VIX. When I'm not at work I try to avoid the screen as much as possible. I enjoy music - all of it and everything about it - and getting outside into the great outdoors exploring new places; either on foot or on my bike. I have also been known to enjoy a gin or three..
"She’s such an enthusiastic and driven person, gets stuff done and genuinely loves working with her team and I think that’s what everyone wants in their Job?"
Interview with Catherine
Who is your role model and why?
Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation. She’s just great isn’t she.
No but on a serious note, I think the character of Leslie Knope is a great role model for anyone, not just women. She’s such an enthusiastic and driven person, gets stuff done and genuinely loves working with her team and I think that’s what everyone wants in their Job? It’s what I aspire to be like anyway.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I wouldn’t say they’re hidden and I’m not particularly talented but I play the Piano and the Guitar? Well try to anyway.
Not really a hidden talent though, ermm…
I know word for word the Will Smith classic Miami? This is something I only discovered recently.. after quite a few gins.
Tools you use at work or can't work without?
Hmm, that’s a hard question! I change my tools so frequently.
At the moment I’m really enjoying using Bear for note taking. I’d say I can’t work without Sketch, it’s just so much more intuitive than the Adobe Suite. And I’ve also recently switched from Sublime Text to Visual Studio Code and I’m absolutely loving it, I couldn’t imagine trying to use Sublime now.
Where is your favourite place to visit?
Croatia or Canada. Because the scenery 😍
What is your spirit animal?
Ermm, there’s so many! I can’t choose!! I’m gonna go with an Elephant because they’re wise and they seem pretty chilled?
A Dolphin, just coz.
