Tell us about you (What drives you)
Seeking understanding, or as I like to call it, the WHY. I have always been fascinated with why we do what we do, what we are driven by, and how this is reflected in our actions. As a self-diagnosed psychology addict, my attention has always been swayed towards gaining a deeper understanding of our biological and psychological processes. More specifically, I care about how we interact, connect, and communicate with each other in all aspects of life. I judge my character based on the connections I make with the people around me and embody the constant pursuit to develop my craft. This is my fuel for life!
Tell us a fun fact about you
I spent most of my childhood living in the French/Swiss mountains! The majority of my time was spent zooming down the slopes (on weekends that is… I still had to be educated!) or taking long walks around the lakes in Switzerland.
What is your biggest fear?
That one day... Joe Rogan will stop making podcasts!
Why did you join Tailify?
I joined Tailify because it was clear we shared the same values and ambitions. From day one, I knew Tailify cared about its people and their journey just as much as their own. How can anyone resist an organisation with that mentality?
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Being someone that people can always depend on.
If you could give your younger self 1 piece of advice, what would it be?
There is no courage without fear. Be open to new experiences even if they seem daunting at the time!
What is the single most valuable thing you’ve ever learned?
We have two lives, and the second begins when you realise we only have one.
If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, alive or dead, who would they be?
Morgan Freeman, Joe Rogan, Gordon Ramsey, Steve Jobs.
Gordon could whip up a storm in the kitchen, while Joe talks about his experiences with the 1500+ people he has interviewed. I would ask Steve what he thinks about the current Apple products/strategy and be quite content with just listening to Mr Freeman talk about anything!
My secret passion is…/ guilty pleasure
Golf! A relatively new obsession but I can’t get enough of it.
In the next 5 years, the biggest thing I want to achieve is…
Finding balance within both my personal and professional environments. I believe finding balance in all aspects of life is the key to true happiness.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I have watched all 8 seasons of Desperate Housewives with no regrets what so ever!
How do you think your colleagues will describe you in one year?
Open, honest, and wondering why I won’t stop banging on about nutrition!
Who is your favourite influencer and how have they influenced you?
Stef Michalak - He is a true artist. Relentlessly pursuing new approaches to further refine his craft. Speaking honestly about his successes and failure, all produced with immaculate attention to detail and stunning cinematography. A big inspirational figure for me!
