SHORT BIO

I work on broadcast, podcast, video and digital projects across Marketplace.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Time.

What is something that everyone should own, no matter how much it costs?

A very soft sweater.

What’s something that you thought you knew but later found out you were wrong about?

There's no “n” in restaurateur!

What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?

My teapot. It adds a real sense of home to my desk.
