Digital & PR Executive
What made you want to work for Fifteen?
I’ve spent a lot of time freelancing and working for myself, whilst this gives you a lot of freedom professionally it also can be very lonely. I enjoy working around ambitious people both professionally and personally, hence an agency like Fifteen stood out for me. It had an air about it that struck me as different to other agencies. I’m much more suited to being part of the leaders than the followers.
Why did you become a Digital & PR Executive and what are the most enjoyable aspects of the job?
I’m obsessed with the growing power of the digital world in our society, it fascinates me how rapidly things have changed even in just the past couple of years. Plus, I love the accessibility it gives to anyone – the online world allows you to be anyone you want to be.
What’s the most unusual fact about yourself that not a lot of people know?
I’m a fluent German speaker and have lived in Frankfurt and Berlin.
What would we be likely to bump into you doing at the weekend?
Running, definitely eating all of the snacks or taking photos of my insanely attractive dog.
