1.) What’s your job, in a nutshell?
Work placement-er

2.) What made you want to get into advertising?
I studied Biology and Management at university, is this not the obvious career path?


3.) What’s your all-time favourite ad?
Google Chrome’s ‘Dear Sophie’ ad is a personal favourite.

Kudos Google for making me weep over a web browser!

4.) Who’s your favourite colleague, and why?
The McDonald’s team as they’ve been such a welcoming bunch.

5.) Tell us a joke.
What do you call a cheese that’s not yours? Nacho cheese! (I love a cheesy joke.)

6.) If you weren’t working here, what would you be doing?
I’d still be in my previous job flogging ringtone subscriptions to unsuspecting South Africans.

7.) Which four people would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?
Grace Kelly, Al Pacino, Beyoncé and Jimmy McMillan.

8.) Tell us an interesting story about you and a celebrity.
I met Michael Jackson in the Disney Store on Regent Street. We were the only people on the lower ground floor so he came over to say ‘Hi’ to us. I was 9. It was the most terrifying experience of my entire life.

9.) You’re going into space. You’re allowed to take one record, one book and one film. What do you choose?
Al Green – Let’s Stay Together
Haruki Murakami – The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

10.) Sum up Leo Burnett London in five words.
A lovely bunch of people!
