Have any pets?
I never grew up with any pets but since moving to the city, I have lived with a succession of cats most recently 2 lovely tabby cats called Maimie and Steve.

What is/has been your biggest professional challenge?
Taking the big leap from designing for fun to pursue it as a career has been a very daunting yet really rewarding experience. I have been fortunate enough to have joined a creative and collaborative space and am looking forward to learning even more!

Do you have any quirky hobbies or interests that have impacted your life or way of thinking?
Probably not that quirky but I enjoy climbing. I love that you can’t think about anything other than completing a route without falling, so it can be a great escape from the stresses of the city when you need it.

Do you have any bad habits?
