What would you be if you weren't a brand manager?
A photographer for National Geographic, or I'd work in consumer research.

What attracted you to your job?
I love how Yazoo's quirky personality has been brought to life in the recent TV campaign.

What was your finest hour?
Implementing a social-media programme when I worked at McCain Foods.
If you were a brand what would you be and why?
Cath Kidston - distinctive, bright and girly.

Honda 'Cog'; that the product was integral to the creative is a marketing dream.

People who don't take responsibility to make their life the best it can be.

To become excellent at anything I take up, to be able to fly, and to stop people being negative.
