The thing I love about my job is… “That in order to be a great accounts person you not only need to cultivate good media relations but also an exceptional list of restaurants, bars and influential contacts, as well as a strong sense of style.”
On the weekend, you usually find me… “Enjoying football on the field, in the North Terrace at Hongkou Stadium, or down the pub cheering on my beloved Spurs. On a perfect weekend I will get to do each of these things.”
I’ve always wanted to travel to… “Beirut. The city once known as the Paris of the Levant is not only beautiful with outstanding food, but an example of how different cultures can live together in harmony.”
