How are you finding emc so far?
It’s been good! I’ve been really lucky to find a job that I’m really interested in and straight out of uni too. The team has been great, and the location sure is a contrast to the madness of London!
Your background is in fine art, how has this prepared you for your role here at emc?
Studying Fine Art gave me a broad variety of skills, but its particularly helped in the research elements of the job. I enjoy the challenge of trying to find the right image for the task and I think my visual awareness and perceptive skills definitely help in this area!
What is it that you love about art?
I’m a very visual person; I remember things mostly by colour. I think I’m mostly attracted to the idea of creating and expressing memories in a creative way, and challenging the viewer’s perception. When you study an artwork you’re also studying a person’s point of view, their thoughts and opinion; and there’s something special about that. It’s like speaking a different language.
What do you enjoy doing outside of emc?
I’m not very good at sitting still so I like to exercise a lot. I enjoy cycling, and I’m currently trying to get back into running. I like shopping, visiting galleries and exploring cities, but there’s got to be the promise of a good restaurant along the way. I’m into cooking too!
Cake or ice cream?
Pen or pencil?

Truth, I’m a wuss.

Mac – I love my ipad!
Who’d win in a fight a crab or a terrapin?
And finally, what came first the chicken or the egg?
