What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to be an artist. My dad is a graphic designer, so art has always been a huge part of my life. I love painting and I moonlight as a portrait artist when I’m not at Cosy HQ!
Describe your job in three words
Fun, rewarding and interesting!
What does your average day at Cosy Aromas HQ involve?
When I was in production it was pouring a lot of wax which was a workout for my arms! I still get my workout now because I’m always up and down the stairs and all over the building doing videos and setting up opportunities for content.
My day also involves lots of learning, I’m continuously developing my skills and researching new ideas.
What's your favourite Cosy Aromas scent?
It has to be Black Cherry – I just want to eat it! The first time it was poured I had to walk away from the table because I thought me inner food demon would take over!
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
When I’m not at work I love to paint.
I also enjoy cycling, walking the maniac family dog and seeing my family and friends. Oh and I enjoy eating, a lot! I have a weakness for most food, but asian food in particular.
What piece of advice would you give your teenage self?
I would probably tell my teenage self to focus more and enjoy the journey. I think there’s a lot of pressure for teenagers and young people to do well and it’s not always about the end goal. That being said, I wish I had focused a little more in school!
Which three celebrities – dead or alive – would you have to a dinner party?
I would probably have Noel Fielding for his good energy, Richard Ayoade for his hilarious awkwardness and Aisling Bea to add a little extra weirdness! I think they would be an excellent combination of people and make for a very entertaining evening.
If you could have any super power, what would you choose and why?
I can’t choose between flying and teleporting. I’d like to be able to fly so I could enjoy the sights from above but then I’d like to teleport because I’d save so much time getting to places!
What’s one thing your Cosy Aromas colleagues might not know about you?
I can play the piano with my pinky toe. Albeit very, very badly, but I can do it nonetheless.
