- What has been your Best Life Project to date?
I’m not sure I could pick one specific project, so I’ll just say that my career as a whole. Might be looking at this too hard, but it’s been a great ride so far.
- The unknown … what challenges did you have to overcome?
Time management is a big one, not just being on time but utilising it. When I first went freelance I could have days between projects and wasn’t always great at using that time efficiently.
- In hindsight…..what would you do differently?
Sell my Xbox!
- Next steps?
I’m not sure what will come next and that’s part of the fun, but I’m working on new things everyday.
- What lifestyle changes has lockdown made you consider?
Zoom was great, but I want to see people more.
- Kissing frogs …. is there an unexpected person who has helped you and, if so, how did they do it?
More people than I can think of have helped me in big ways or small. My family dog had a big impact though, we got him 4 or 5 years ago. I’ve been vegetarian since I was six but I think forming a relationship with him made a difference in how I view other animals and I’ve been vegan for three years now.
- My Inspiration ….who or what inspires you?
Talent and kindness inspire me. I love seeing really talented people doing their thing. Doesn’t matter if it’s sport, music, dance, whatever – I’m always inspired by greatness and the feeling you get when you see something great.
- How do you relax or do you struggle to relax?
I’m good at relaxing or certainly committing to relax, I get a spa day. I love spas. One of my brothers recently told me he’d never been to a spa and it blew my mind.
- Guilty secret pleasure?
Maybe it’s spas again? Not a secret anymore though.
