Sky Blue (great for the soul).

What’s one of your favourite movies?
Oh I can’t pick one… A beautiful Mind, Theory of Everything and Dead Poets Society… all old classics (and actually a college/school thread running through them all, wonder what that’s about).

What’s one of your favourite songs to listen to at work?
Not a chance, I can’t do it, not sure how my mind works but there is no more room for another distraction, my head is too full and chaotic. But outside of work I love absolutely everything and think Louise Duffy’s show is incredible to listen to on playback at the weekends because she covers everything from decades ago up to the now….

What’s your favourite thing about working at pluto?
Not sure if there’s a word for it but it’s a feeling of just walking into my own safe tribe and being with my own people who have my back… it’s a joy though… a joy without a word that I can think of.

What’s one of your favourite projects while working at pluto?
I guess the whole agency development and evolution is a never-ending project with it’s incredible highs and sometimes heartbreaking lows, I couldn’t imagine a more enjoyable project than scaling this mountain knowing that the summit just gets higher and higher.

It being on the 6.1 news and winning a load of awards was fun too!
