Job title: Head of New Business

One line job description: Responsible for attracting and onboarding new clients to A+L. For lack of a better term…I work in Sales

Where do you live? Brighton

One thing you love about your job: Most definitely the people. That means both my colleagues and clients. I’m a chatterbox by nature and we have some AMAZING clients that have some really interesting businesses, so I have a great time asking about how their businesses tick

What do you like to do in your spare time? I’m an unapologetic food snob so I spend most of my time (and money) eating out. I’m running a marathon soon so I’d like to say something more wholesome like “running is my passion” but it feels like more of a chore at this stage

Favourite food: Wings, but make sure they’re good (see my above point).

Drink of choice: A nice cold lager if I only get one choice

Something people don’t know about you: I flew a plane when I was like 8 and did a loop and barrel-roll. I had the controls and everything. On reflection it seems very unsafe. I’m also a very proud New Zealander, though this becomes quite apparent when I open my mouth apparently.

In another life I’d be a: Pilot (again, see my above point).

Favourite song of all time: Skew It On The Bar-B, Outkast feat. Raekwon

And a film: True Romance – I even have a True Romance tattoo

This is my dog Noodles. She’s the best. She’s quite often grumpy, smells kind of bad and doesn’t really like being stroked but I wouldn’t have her any other way.
