Meet The Team - Fino

Meet The Team Fino Hood

Fino joined Sunshine Communications in early 2016 as our Head of Content, with both agency and brand-side experience and a degree in Marketing and French. Yet to use his French skills with any of the team, he was, like Community Manager Jen, recruited directly via social. See, we’re pretty good with this social media stuff at Sunshine.

Fino’s main role within the team is to produce the content we put out on behalf of clients. That might be putting virtual pen to paper and writing copy or creating any image or video-based content. He works across multiple clients and mediums to create engaging content that works.

In addition to that, he does a bit of community management, helps run paid campaigns as well as reporting and analysing our content so that we know what things work for which clients.

With the CV out the way, here are Fino’s answers to our Meet the Team questionnaire…

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

A few of the best bits have already been mentioned; the team, the upbeat atmosphere etc. Specifically to my role, I like the collaborative aspect, in that I get to work with every team member on different projects.

What’s your favourite Social Media platform?

I’ll go a little off the beaten track and say Vimeo. The quality of films on there is really high and you can spend a decent chunk of your day going down the rabbit-hole. Flickr and 500px are great for networks for photographers so there are a few places beyond just YouTube and Instagram to get your visual fix.

What’s your favourite quote?

“Skills are cheap. Passion is priceless.”

Pretty generic business quote, isn’t it? But it rings true. For me, those who enjoy what they’re doing do the best work. You can teach anyone anything, but if you’re not passionate about it, there’ll always be that little something missing.

When I’m not working you’ll find me…

I’m a big sports fan, so I watch a lot of sport. I enjoy getting out and about with my camera and taking photos, as well as getting away from Scotland to see more of the world. Attempting to learn Portuguese is a new hobby, because learning French clearly wasn't painful enough for me.

 Where would be at the top of your bucketlist?

Two places: Japan and Ghana.

Japan is somewhere I’ve been fascinated by for years, and working on EXO Travel means I get the chance to really develop a deeper understanding of the country. And Ghana? No idea why. Just somewhere that’s always appealed!
