We ask the tough questions
Who, or what, is your biggest inspiration?
The web design community. I love that people in my industry are always sharing ideas and contributing to continually improve the internet.
What’s your number one stress relief tactic (keep it clean!)?
Exercise. We have a trampoline for the kids and I have to say that it's a great stress reliever for adults, too! So much fun.
What’s your favourite film, book and album?
Film: I'm a kid on the inside and I've always loved The Goonies. Chocolat is another one of my favourites.
Book: Don’t Make Me Think by Steve Krug is a great common-sense book, which I recommend for business owners wanting to build a website.
Album: The soundtrack from the movie Once.
What’s the one resource you’d never be without?
A Kilometrico pen! I love them and have them everywhere.
What or who has the most grounding influence on you?
My husband and my two daughters.
What’s the most enjoyable element of your work?
Talking to my clients about their ideas for not only their website or logo, but their business in general.
And the least enjoyable?
Choosing stock photos. So many fake smiles! It can be tough finding decent stock photos. I encourage my clients to use their own photos on their websites where possible.
What’s the best thing about being a soloist?
Working my own hours – I love that I can work around my lifestyle.
And the worst thing?
I miss office chatter and after-work drinks.
What would be your advice to aspiring soloists?
Don't forget why you became a soloist – remind yourself every so often.
What website do you visit every day?
Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures. It literally makes me LOL.
What music are you listening to at the moment?
(500) Days of Summer soundtrack.
If your office caught fire, what would you grab first? What would you toss into the flames?
The Kilometricos!! No, seriously, my computer. I’d definitely leave the printer behind.
Do you prefer crosswords, logic puzzles or neither?
I love to do the Jumble – it's well worth the corny joke at the end.
