Q. What’s your favourite thing about working at Sunshine Communications?

Straight off the bat, I felt immediately appreciated and respected – not just for my work, but for who I am as a person. Since joining the Sunshine team, I’ve felt more myself and fully embraced that I’m a goofy, spooky, something-or-another that will probably never choose one creative craft. And that’s a good thing. So, for anyone that’s struggled to find a balance between their ‘professional’ and ‘personal’ self, I reckon it’s a case of not being amongst likeminded people.

Q. What’s your favourite quote?

Q. What’s your favourite Social Media platform?

The designer in me wants to say Instagram. It’s clean, it’s minimalist, it forces you to get to the point. However, the realist in me will always go for Facebook. Not only does it give you the most return of advertising, but it’s the most flexible. It sings, it dances, it stalks you a little bit. Just like me.

Q. When I’m not working you'll find me….

I am a huge cheerleader of the often discussed but rarely achieved work-life balance, so when I hang up my hat, you can mostly find me chilling at home.

When I’m suitably caffeinated though, you’ll find me boogying at gigs, spending more time looking at set-design than characters at the theatre, or getting a taste of the great outdoors (don’t suggest you taste everything, mind you).

Q. What would be at the top of your bucket list?

Honestly? I’ve never really kept a bucket list, because I think I’d get sad if I ever neared the end of it. I imagine it’d be like nearing the end of a really great novel. You want it to continue, but eventually, the story has to end. So, you just need to make sure your story is as interesting as it can be before you inevitably kick the bucket. List or not, you know?
