Apparently I was curious from a young age, either disappearing off on an exploration or spending an age examining something which had grabbed my attention (often this involved dismantling things -fortunately I've since learnt the art of re-assembly). To the constant exasperation of my family, "why" became my favourite word. For this I thank my beloved grandmother (a natural teacher who instilled in me the importance of learning from a very young age) and my grandfather (who retired to pursue a degree in archaeology and anthropology.)
After various adventures in hospitality, the music industry and market research, I've evolved into a strategic planner in an ad agency -the perfect role for one who is interested in ideas and questioning the status quo. Asking why is my job -my grandmother would be proud.
Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, I am now happily ensconced in London. A bigger pond with more things to investigate. Lovely.
