What’s your career background?
I still worked within the world of marketing but in the commercial alcohol industry. I’ve got a lot of bizarre and interesting stories from celebrity events. None of which I can share here.
What’s an average day look like for you at Aardvark Swift?
A varied mix of the hidden stuff. From managing the support and logistics of our Grads in Games initiative, through to social media, events and customer support. I also run most of the behind-the-scenes work on the marketing side; stats and analytics, through to web development and tech work.
What do you love most about your job?
I’m doing work I love in an industry I love. Can’t really ask for more than that. I really enjoy the team outings and events we go to together!
Favourite memory so far?
Presenting the Search for a Star conference and Grads in Games Awards to a packed hall of students, academics and studios that I’d been working closely with for several months. It’s hugely gratifying for me to see out our biggest annual campaign like that and it’s something I’m a part of every year now.
