What made you want to join Neon Hive?
The diversity. Because Neon Hive creates these wickedly innovative websites for all kinds of businesses, it means there is never a dull project that lands on the table.
What’s your favourite aspect of working with Neon Hive?
What would pass for an acceptable answer is the talented and devilishly funny workmates. But, I'd be lying that they're my favourite aspect. Working with Jono takes the cake. Literally anywhere he goes, he brings this ambitious energy and is constantly encouraging us to push creative boundaries. My greatest work has been produced under his mentorship.
Who in your life inspires you?
Hank Moody from Californication. Oh, you meant non-fictional? My parents. Growing up they always had me try everything at least once, be it olives, rollercoasters, or Neil Young's Tonight's The Night. Now I'm stuck with this attitude. Which is great, because with an appreciation for all things, no matter how small, you get this keen eye for detail.
Describe your personality in three words.
Annoyingly enthusiastic. Intuitive.
Your top three favourite Podcasts/Books?
Big fan of W. B. Yeats' poetry and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. But Anthony Kiedis' autobiography, Scar Tissue... a clear winner. I read it every Summer and enjoy it more the sandier it gets.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
Consuming films. Or cooking with good company, wine, and music.
Who would you most like to swap places with for the day and why?
90's Liv Tyler on the set of Stealing Beauty. For the Tuscan vibes. And I'd call Steve to come hang.
Lastly, and most importantly, how do you take your coffee?
